A program designed for LPNs and RNs
This program has been designed for LPNs and RNs who have maintained their Florida State Board of Nursing license and want to update their skills and gain employment.
Classes are offered days, evenings, and weekends in the classroom, the skills lab and the human patient simulator lab. Testing follows each class. All classes are approved for continuing education credits and are reported to CE Broker. Courses are not for college credit. Classes are held on the Daytona Beach campus of Daytona State College in Health Sciences Hall (Bldg. 320), on Heineman Street behind Halifax Hospital.
Students can take courses at their own pace
Enrollees may begin the Nurse Refresher Program at any time and take courses at their own pace.
A copy of the student’s Florida nursing license and resumé begins the student record. This is the time to begin mapping out employment and educational goals and develop an individualized learning plan.
There is no charge for this initial meeting and there is no registration fee.
Each course is individually priced. The number of courses an enrollee takes and the length of the program is customized to the needs and desired employment setting of the individual.
After completing the foundation of refresher courses, a clinical experience preceptorship with direct patient care relevant to employment goals, will be offered. The clinical setting may be a hospital, home health agency, skilled nursing facility, hospice, etc. The number of clinical hours spent at a setting will be individually determined.
Before the preceptorship can be started all Nurse Refresher Program enrollees must have current Basic Life Support Certification, malpractice and health insurance, health screening, current immunizations, and pay for national criminal background fingerprinting and drug screening.
