Thanks Karen for the RN refresher link. I took the survey on that site, and bookmarked it so I could read it more thoroughly later.
I haven't worked as a nurse in 5 years, and would love to find a refresher course to take so I can return to nursing. We're in TX now due to military orders, but hopefully won't be here more than another year. I do NOT want to obtain a nursing license for TX. It is too expensive for one. They want too much information that I would have to pay for out of pocket......and since I've worked in a lot of states before, they want a verification from every state I've worked in, and those verification fees add up.
Also, TX requires a nurse to take a refresher course if she/he hasn't worked in over 4 years......and that would include me. We are NOT going to make TX our home, so why put in all that money for just a short stay here?
