Need help paying for NCLEX refresher course.
- 0Feb 13, '11 by Mocknbird2Hi! New here and hope someone can help with some answers
I'm recently divorced and financially strapped. I need to return to work and most of my experience is as an LPN. I haven't worked for several years but still remember a lot of my nursing.
The NCLEX program looks promising, however, I barely have enough for house payment, elect, food.........you know, the basics. There's no way for me to pay for the refresher course, even though it's only about $1000.
Does anyone know where I might get help paying for this? My credit is trashed now, so no loans.
Any help is much appreciated. I really need to get back to work and I miss it, too. I was a good nurse. Hope to be again. If I can just get this course paid for,

I was an LPN> My liscense has expired. I need to take a refresher course for LPNs, so I can take the exam again and go back to work. Just short on money.
I hope that clarifies what I was trying to say.
- 0Mar 30, '11 by retronoviceIf you do need to study and take the NCLEX exam here, you may want to get a job as a nursing assistant (temporarily)at a place that also hires LPNs. That way you have some money coming in while you work toward updating your license. You should contact the WA DOH to find out exactly what steps to take to become licensed in WA.
