I've been thinking about taking a refresher course because I have been a SAHM for almost 5 years. My husband is in the military so until my kids are all in school, it's just too difficult to return to work at this time, even PRN. When you move every 1-3 years it makes it pretty difficult.
Anyway, has anybody ever taken a refresher course, but not done the clinical portion? I'm wondering if it is a huge waste of my time or if it's worth it to keep updated on current information. I can do the entire refesher online, but obviously clincial hours are all in a hospital / clinic setting. Once again, I run into problems with my husband's career.
Also, does anyone else feel like they could still go right back to nursing with no problem after 5 years? I swear, I have not forgotten a thing. I think it's terrible that we are considered unemployable after 5 years
