Nurse refresher courses are designed for nurses who have been out of the field for a while and want to return to active practice or reactivate a license. They are often used by nurses who cannot spend time in a classroom because they offer self-study options.
Nurse refresher courses give nurses a way to update their knowledge, which in turn makes them more confident. The course is composed of several modules and a clinical preceptorship, and many courses must be completed within 2 years. Once the self-study modules are completed, nurses will need to take a post test and enroll in the clinical component of the course.
