Practicing nurse professionals who wish to broaden their healthcare knowledge or nurses who are returning to a healthcare setting after a prolonged absence can learn comprehensive theory and get clinical experience in Moraine Valley Community College’s Current Nurse Update Refresher course.
The 10-week RN Refresher course includes theory classes on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Moraine Valley and clinical work on Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Little Company of Mary Hospital, 2800 W. 95th St., in Evergreen Park. The class begins February 23. Tuition is $1,400.
Students in the course will re-establish a solid medical-surgical foundation. The course also addresses basic nursing care concepts, principles throughout the life span biologically and psychosocially, and concepts relevant to current registered nursing practice.
This course is approved for 10 adult education credits by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). Proof of immunizations and required documentation are due two weeks before the first class. Attendance at every class is mandatory or the student will be dropped without a refund.
