Have you been away from the clinical setting for a while and need to regain clinical confidence? Are you looking for a career change?

Perhaps you need to update your medical-surgical knowledge. Whatever the case, in our increasingly complex health care system, nurses face many challenges.

Meet these challenges with our RN Refresher Certificate Program, which consists of comprehensive refresher courses followed by an optional clinical experience in a setting aimed at your employment goal. We feature qualified faculty, and access to current educational materials.

You may design your own schedule by entering our program at any time and sequencing the courses to fit your individual needs and goals. Coursework can be completed within 10 to 12 weeks, though you are free to spread it out over several semesters.  We offer small to medium size classes with one-on-one attention. When you complete the program, your resume will look professional, and you will be prepared for those difficult interviews.
