times roman Can anyone tell me if it is a requirement or mandate for a registered ICU nurse with 20 years experience but who has not actively practiced nursing since 1999 to go through an RN refresher course? I have been going to school to get my Bachelors in Health Administration and Public Health but would like to work in nursing part time. Are there options for me to consider that would welcome my experience? I am 49 and wonder if there are nursing avenues that would welcome an experienced nurse more so than hospitals who are pursuing new graduates. Does anyone know of specific hospitals who welcome experienced older nurses?
