This short, focused program will allow you to update your nursing knowledge and clinical understanding in only 7 weeks, whether it be to move to a new position or return to employment in nursing. Six full days of didactic class instruction and 4-5 full days of skills review in the CSU Nursing Resource Lab (NRL) will refresh your knowledge and skills and build your confidence to re-enter the work force. 

This program meets the Ohio Board of Nursing requirements for continuing education needed to reactivate an inactive / lapsed license or renew a volunteer certificate.
