RN Refresher Program

The RN Refresher program at Red Rocks is designed for registered nurses who want to return to practice nursing but need a refresher. The field of nursing has changed as healthcare systems have evolved. In order to return to the workforce, an individual needs to possess current knowledge and skills about the practice of nursing. 

The RN Refresher course is designed for the RN who:

  • Took a break from nursing, maybe to raise a family or perhaps to pursue a different career.
  • Graduated from nursing school and became licensed but never actually worked in nursing.
  • Has a nursing license that has lapsed or expired.
  • Received a conditional mandate from the Board of Nursing requiring successful completion of an approved RN Refresher course.

Note: The RN Refresher course is NOT designed to be an NCLEX review program.

Any RN wishing to obtain current nursing information and master relevant skills will benefit from the RN Refresher course. The program is designed to be completed in one semester and takes place at the Arvada campus.  The course will be delivered in a flexible manner which includes theory, lab practice, simulations and clinical days at a hospital site. The course is offered twice per year. Completion of the course awards the nurse a Certificate. 

Registration will open on November 3, 2014 with classes beginning January 20, 2015.
