I am a RN returning to the work force after a 12 year break. I was intimidated to return and NEO nursing has made this transition back to nursing a wonderful experience. In the RN Refresher course I learned an immense of information regarding the body systems, disease processes, EKGs, ABGs, IV administration, documentation and laboratory diagnostics. I was also provided assistance and tips regarding my resume and interviewing skills. I have never in the past understood EKGs and ABGs as I do now. I can not express enough how this RN Refresher course has raised my confidence and I now feel prepared to enter the workforce. Jane is amazing and ALL her staff, especially Bettie is wonderful. They all work very hard to make sure each student comprehends each topic and subject matter before moving on. I can’t say enough great things about NEO’s RN Refresher coarse. I have already signed up to take my ACLS from NEO.
