RN Refresher Program  

The CSU RN Refresher Program is designed for RNs who wish to update their knowledge and clinical understanding, whether it be to move to a new position or return to employment in nursing.

For over 40 years our program has been taken by thousands of nurses in Ohio and beyond. The main focus is adult medical-surgical nursing, and topics include care of patients with respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, gastrointestinal, orthopedic, endocrine, and neurologic problems. A special session will cover Ohio Law and Rules pertaining to nursing practice (2 hours of Category A).

The RN Refresher program is an intensive learning experience consisting of classroom instruction, outside reading, and skills lab experience. Weekly quizzes and a comprehensive final examination facilitate learning. Additional resources are available through the Blackboard online learning system.

To successfully complete the program you must attend at least 80% of the class sessions, all lab sessions, complete all quizzes/exams, online modules and submit an evaluation form . The program content exceeds the requirements for nursing license reactivation through the Ohio Board of Nursing.One full week of lab sessions are included in the program. These hands-on simulation experiences are held in our new Nursing Resource Lab (NRL). The laboratory content reflects evidence-based practice and instructor analysis of nursing interventions in specific patient care situations.
