The RN Refresher Course CPS 4200, offered by Madonna University’s College of Nursing and Health, has been designed for nurses who have maintained their RN license but have been out of clinical practice for longer than two years and are wishing to return to an adult setting in acute care, home care, and/or long term care. This course does not replace agency orientation but is intended to assist the nurse in completing agency orientation with confidence. An update on adult medical-surgical conditions commonly encountered in hospital, home care, and long term care settings will be provided. A system’s approach will be utilized with each condition. General concepts of care, assessment, pharmacotherapy, clinical practice guidelines, management of emergent conditions, and discharge planning will be presented. The course includes some nursing skills practice in a lab setting but there is no clinical component. For more information, please contact Jeanne Heatlie, EdD, MSN, RN by email:>
