The Cleveland State University School of Nursing’s RN Refresher Program is designed with your needs in mind!
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 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.
Each classroom session includes an in-person recruiter visit from local healthcare and hospital systems where you will be informed of current position availability, compensation, benefits, training, shadow opportunities, and given personal assistance throughout the hiring process.
This program meets the Ohio Board of Nursing requirements for continuing education needed to reactivate an inactive / lapsed license or renew a volunteer certificate.
Plan ahead and register for an information session, where you will meet other nurses contemplating the program, hear more about the program content, schedule, and expectations, and enjoy a tour of our Nursing Resource Lab (NRL), where you will be practicing your skills during the lab week.

PLEASE NOTE: Satisfactory completion of the Refresher Course may be an asset in seeking employment in nursing, particularly in those institutions that require the course for re‑entry into nursing practice. However, you are responsible for your own job placement and completion of the course does not guarantee a nursing position.
