RN/LPN Skills Refresher class offered at WCC

Meets one of the mandatory requirements to have license reinstated by MBON

The Washtenaw Community College Nursing and Health Sciences Division and its Workforce Development department are teaming up to help get nurses whose licenses have lapsed back into the profession.

The RN/LPN Skills Refresher class meets one of the requirements to have an RN or LPN license reinstated by the Michigan Board of Nursing after it has lapsed or otherwise been lost. Nurses must also achieve 25 continuing education units prior to reinstatement.

The classes are being led by WCC professional nursing faculty member Mary Burns-Coral, MSN, RN, CNE.

The RN/LPN Skills Refresher class is split into two days of content. The first will provide up to eight hours of supervised skills practice and the second will consist of up to four hours of testing for validation of nursing skills.

Skills include: head-to-toe physical assessment, including vital signs; medication administration; documentation; surgical asepsis and infection control; safety, including fall prevention; body mechanics; and transfers.

The next scheduled classes:

  • Supervised practice on Friday, Sept. 28 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and testing on Friday, Oct. 5 (8 a.m. to noon). Register here.

Those who successfully complete the class will receive a certification of completion. This class meets the Michigan State Board of Nursing requirement for Certification of Skill Competency.

For more information about the classes, contact the WCC Workforce Development department at 734-677-5060 or workforce-development@wccnet.edu.
