From Facebook: How do I find refresher courses that are legitimate?
Dear Donna replies:
Dear Needs Refreshing,
Many state boards of nursing (https://www.ncsbn.org/contactbon.htm) and state chapters of the American Nurses Association (http://nursingworld.org/FunctionalMenuCategories/findyourstate) list this information on their websites. But since each association lists it in a different place, if you can’t find it there, call the association and ask if they have that information available.
Otherwise, I suggest that you search for “RN refresher course in (your state).” Once you locate one that might appeal to you, check with the above entities to be sure the courses you are considering are recognized or legitimate.
Unfortunately, there are very few refresher courses offered right now in many states because the nursing job market and the nursing workforce itself are shifting.
