RN Refresher Program

About the RN Refresher

Are you seeking to re-enter the hospital, or healthcare environment? Then, NEO’s RN Refresher is the program for you. We understand that nurses have a busy schedule, for this reason we created a flexible curriculum. To summarize, NEO’s RN Refresher is 5-week program. Each class takes place on Saturdays for 6 to 8 hours. Attendance is mandatory for all 5-classes due to the fact that this program is already short to allow for flexibility. In addition, students cannot leave earlier than the designated time due to the risks of missing crucial material. To ensure that students get the most from our program, commitment is a must.

Each Saturday, students will learn about the physiology and pathophysiology of several organ systems, these include; Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Gastrointestinal, Endocrine, Renal, Muscle plus Skeletal, and Reproductive systems. Nurses will also learn how to effectively respond and treat disorders related to these systems. Furthermore, each session includes a lecture on resume writing and interview skills. Over the 5 week-long program, students will learn how to create a resume that passes candidate screening systems.

Finally, after completing the program, students will receive an evaluation certificate with performance results of the patient assessment test; in addition, students will receive Forty Contact Education Hours. NEO’s California BRN approved CEH’s are adequate to renew your nursing license or re-obtain a revoked license.
