Just sit back and try to regroup. I have been in your same situation so I know how you feel. The last time I tested and passed I used UWorld and Mark Klimeck audio. When using UWorld I studied by systems that helped me a lot. I also used Lacharity.
Yes I found a good one, because one hospital I called they were rude and very condescending, but I refused to let it stop me, people have all kind of reasons for not doing things right away so just apply to everything you never know! Again good luck
I did not take a refresher course, before applying for my job I called the nurse recruiter at the hospital I planned on working at. She was extremely nice... In a nutshell she basically said that she has come across people in my situation and that orientation would be long enough. I applied and got hired on a Med Surge floor. My orientation was good alot of things came back to me instantly and I asked alot of questions I was not just thrown out there. I had to learn better time management but everything worked out. Remember you just passed your NCLEX this year, so you are up to date with current standards. Hope this helps to encourage you!
No they will not recognize your current license. You won't have to take NCLEX again, but you will have to take the test they have for the P.R . Look at some of the older threads they explain in more detail.
