Hello everyone,

I am a R.N. Graduated in 02, passed boards in 03 and I've never

practiced outside of clinical.I realize now that was a big mistake.I am

studying my textbooks and have taken a refresher course.Refresher

did not allow for much floor time in hospital.I know I can do this yet I'm

aware of my lack of experience in basic procedures that will be expected

of me, ie:hanging blood etc.Any suggestions on hospital refreshers or

intensive new grad programs would be truly appriciated. I am located

within 40 mins of philadelphia.I was a serious student and still feel I can

be an excellent nurse.

thank you all in advance,

trying again

I am in the same situation. I went back to school when I was 48 years old and got my RN in 2005 and have yet to practice. I am a 50+ year old male and decided to continue in my current work as opposed to use my nursing. I am concerned that if I decide to use my nursing that I will not be employable. I renewed my license to keep it active.

What refresher course did you take?
