Anyone returned to nursing after taking years off?

Does anyone have advice for returning to the hospital setting after a 4 year break to focus on raising family/finish Master's degree? I've been getting pushback that my experience isn't 'recent' enough (5 years of prior acute care hospital experience here).  RN refresher courses seem like a pointless money grab so not too keen on that idea as it doesn't guarantee anything except a maxed out credit card. Any advice or feedback is appreciated! 🙂

If you have not practiced for five years, you NEED a refresher course. You will have a hard time finding a position in acute care without it and your practice will only be improved for having had it.\
