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.

Review from

Registered nurses that have been out of the workplace for several years and want to return to nursing: this course is for you! This course will get you started towards finding your dream job, whether it’s in Maternal Child Care, Critical Care, or Med-Surg Nursing.

Hospital nursing is not the same as it may have been when you were active in the profession of nursing. Today’s hospital nurse must use critical thinking skills. This RN Refresher course will give you the knowledge and the skills to empower you to reach this goal. All hospital will require you to be able to interpret ECG rhythm strips.  You will need to be able to successfully pass a Drug Calculation examination. You will be expected to analyze Blood Gasses.  You will be expected to efficiently place and manage an IV catheter. You must know how to communicate with SBAR.  You will be expected to know how to analyze heart sounds and lung sounds. If you think you may need a refresher course of these expectations, Nurses Educational Opportunities’ RN Refresher Course is an excellent option for you.
