    I moved your post to the General Nursing forum so perhaps you can get more answers.

    I'm not grasping what you're asking, however and others might not either so you might want to be more specific.

    Do you mean skills for special procedures ??? If you were doing homecare wouldn't you use your skills as well??? Sorry if I misunderstood you......I am thinking with stuff that usually isn't seen in the home very very often???

    I think you mean how to hon your clinical skills after being in homecare for 5 years? Having done both I would say you'd almost have to get a job in the hospital on a med-surg floor. In a couple of months you'll be all up to date.

    I'm in the same boat . I have been in home care for a long time and now what to get my hospital skills back. I've been looking for RN med/surg refresher class but I've had trouble finding one. Seems the hospitals in my area don't offer that . The college does but there has to be enough students to give the class. Maybe you will find one in your area. This was suggested to me by Nurse recuriters...Good Luck!!!
