Our RN and LPN Refresher Program is designed with your needs in mind!
| RN Refresher Program | Lab Resources | Participant Testimonials |
This focused in-person program will update your nursing knowledge and clinical understanding in only 6 weeks, whether it be to move to a new position or return to employment in nursing. Five days of didactic class instruction and 4 days of hands-on 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.
LPN's are welcome
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 contact hours needed to reactivate an inactive/ lapsed license.
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.

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds grants to eligible adults for job skills training. If you're looking to upgrade your skills, WIOA can help find the funding. There are two ways to establish eligibility:
1: Dislocated worker: If you've lost a job through no fault of your own (company closure, laid off, military spouse relocation), you can qualify. Your prior income does not affect your eligibility if you're a dislocated worker.
2: Adult income-eligible: If your household income is less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Level (chart at the link provided), you may qualify to have your training funded through WIOA.

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.
