Have you checked into any community colleges by you? I live in the Bradenton/Sarasota Region and I know that Sarasota Memorial has a program for returning nurses. Did you check directly with the hospitals? Do you have your ADN or BSN?
I'm not sure what you would need, but perhaps just taking some CEU's would help?
HI again!! I am not real familar with all this new-fangled computer stuff, but I'll try again!!! My thanks to Patrick, who got me on the right track of the Florida forum! I am hoping to get a few more ideas from ya'll!
I have been out of nursing for thirteen years, and have to take a refresher course before I enter back into the professsion. I have researched the community colleges, and the few there are around me here in Leesburg, are not offering anything at all!! I have called a few local hospitals, and they refer me back to the community hospitals!?!?!? I am truly at a loss - if there is such a shortage of nurses, why is it so difficult to get those of us who want to come back the courses that we need??
I did email the State Board, and was sent a list of approved remedial courses, but it is geared for those nurses retaking their RN exams. There is NOTHING about a refresher course for someone who has been out for awhile and needs a few updates?!? Please help if you can!
Happy New Year
to all, and drive safely tonight so you can post tomorrow!!
I suggest that you may want to post this under the Florida section, listed under US nursing.............you may get more answers that way.........
Howdy! I have just moved to Florida, and will be getting back in to nursing after a respite of thirteen years. I'd like to take a refresher course, but no one in my area seems to be offering them!?!?! This kinda confuses me, since there is a shortage out there! If any one has any info on RN refresher courses in the Leesburg or metro Orlando area, PLEEZE let me know! I certainly appreciate the help! Happy New Year to all!!
I have recently moved to Florida, and am going back into nursing after a thirteen year "respite". I want to take a refresher course before heading back into the work force, but am unable to find one anywhere! Find this so hard to believe, since there is a "shortage" out there! I live in Leesburg, which is 50 miles northwest of Orlando, but can't find anything there, either! Please let me know if you have any advice or info! Thanks so much!
