I graduated in May of 04 and received my RN license. My husband who is in the military was transferred to Alaska to a small town that did not train new grads in their hospital. I took the time at this station to have a baby and we are getting ready to move to Florida the first of the year. My license is still current, but I havent worked more than four months right after I graduated. I want to go back before I forget EVERYTHING that I learned. I am hesitant because I am afraid that I have forgotten almost as much. Any advice. Any good training hospitals in Pensacola, FL or nearby...any advice for training or classes that I can take to prepare myself to be competent in the workplace? ANY advice would be helpful. Thanks in Advance!

Have you taken some continuing education units. If you need some, chose a subject that will help with where you want to work. Many hospitals have new grad programs, so even though you are not exactly a new grad, the program would be good for you.

There are some CEU courses that do cover the basics - iegeneral med-surg nursing or common nursing procedures.
