Nurse Re-entry/Refresher

  1. Hello!

    I would be grateful for any advice you provide. I'm signed up to take a refresher course and clinical over the next few months which would activate my lisence.

    Since I graduated nursing school I have been working in the Pharma/Research sector and not as a clinical nurse so I would be working for my first ever clinical nursing job. The job was great but I feel that now is the time to pursue clinical nursing and I truly regret not doing it sooner.

    Do you think I have a chance?

    Where do I start? Has anyone made a similar transition?

    Thank you!

    Hi, I'm curious to see how it's going. I, too, went into pharmaceutical sales after working in the hospital for 5 years. I'm considering a re-entry program, but it's been 20 plus years for me since I've been in the hospital. What did you decide to do?

    Hi! I decided to take a local refresher program. 50% online and 50% in the hospital. I had a great experience and just completed it last month. There were 8 people in my cohort and it was a great group. Many of the people in my cohort already found jobs; I'm going to start looking soon too.

    Let me know what you decide to do!
