RN/LPN "Hands-On" Clinical Skills Refresher Class  (Click here to see full class schedule)

This Clinical Skills "Hands On" Nurse Refresher class is offered to nurses who have not practiced nursing for an extended period of time, or have been working in a field of nursing where they didn't utilize their "hands-on clinical skills". The goal of this class is to update nurses' knowledge and skill base, with a strong emphasis on clinical nursing procedures and good bed side sterile technique. This one full day seminar will help increase the skills and confidence of RN's and LPN's as they return to the clinical setting.  Seminars are kept small (10-15) students at a time, so that the instructor can answer questions and address special requests.  Our RN instructors are highly experienced and very supportive.
