RN/LPN Skills Refresher

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 next scheduled class is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4 and Monday, Feb. 11. Register here.

Additional classes will be offered on Wednesday, May 15 and Friday, May 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and on Wednesday, Aug. 14 and Friday, Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The RN/LPN Skills Refresher class is split into two six-hour days of content, which includes supervised skills practice and 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.

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.
