Moraine Valley Community College will offer a nurse refresher course for practicing nurse professionals who want to broaden their knowledge or who are returning to a healthcare setting after a prolonged absence.
The 10-week RN Refresher course includes theory classes from 6 to 10 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, at Moraine Valley, and clinical work from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays at Little Company of Mary Hospital, 2800 W. 95th St., Evergreen Park.
The class begins Sept. 16, and the fee is $1,599.
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. 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.
