Need Help Finding LPN Refresher Course

  1. Hi I'm new at this. I accidentally came across this site when i was searching on the net for a refresher course that I need to take in Augusta Ga. for LPN. I've had no success. I relocated to Georgia from PA. I've been out of nursing for the last 5 years, since I had my daughter. I'm anxious to get back into nursing. I do have an LPN license from New York State. I would highly appreciate it if anyone has any info. to give me on this refresher course. Thank you.
