About the Courses

The Registered Nurse Refresher Series includes three courses:  a theory course, a skills refresher course, and a clinical course. The goal of these courses is to provide an update on nursing theory and health care trends, review clinical techniques and skills, and provide a clinical experience. The clinical experience is under the guidance and direct supervision of a preceptor. The theory and skill courses must be completed prior to the clinical course. 




High school students are not eligible to enroll in this program due to the need for a nursing license. Speak to a Mid-State advisor for more information. Learn more about Mid-State Fast-Track
