Nursing Continuing Education

RN Refresher Program

The Cleveland State University School of Nursing’s RN Refresher Program has been redesigned with your needs in mind!

| RN Refresher Program | Lab Resources | Participant Testimonials |

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