Hi everyone, Just wanted to let everyone know about an LPN refresher course I found out about today. Its for RN's, but they will accept LPN's also. It's in Newark at the Rutger's campus for Nursing, in New Jersey. . They'll send you an admissions packet by email. I can't put in the phone #, so you'll have to look it up. Good Luck!!

I have been a licensed practical nurse for five years. I have NEVER been able to get any steady work. I am maintaining my license because you never know, but I am going to try moving on to get my RN. I have two other jobs trying to make ends meet. I have a coworker who has been a registered nurse for five years, but never really practiced because she wanted to be home when her kids were little. She maintained her license. She went out about three months ago and got
A job. She got regular hours in a facility after not having practiced for five years.
I have tried to keep up on new things and I do my CME's.I try to keep my skills fresh. I am getting disCourage's with the LPN. I can't make a living.

Ladies and gents, looking on the Official Virginia Professional Healthcare website, I found a link that offered refresher courses for RN's with no mention of LPN's until you drill down and dig for it. I have found a Virginia Community College that has an online course with an 80 hour clinical requirement. I am waiting a return call from the course instructor hoping to get an answer to the clinical requirements. I specifically want to know if they coordinate the preceptorship. The course outline indicates it is a local hospital and if that is the case, I would be looking for a partner to share hotel costs for two weeks. The college is Blue Ridge Communit College. Faculty is Ms. lori Wack and after three attempts, I now realize I can't put her office phone number on here because of forum rules. I will put a link up to the course after this post. My work is not done yet, I need to obtain written certification from the state of Virginia that this course is recognized and accredited as far as the Board of Nursing is concerned.

Hi Everyone,
I'm trying to get my expired license reinstated, but I'm not quite sure of the steps. I downloaded the packet from the New Jersey Board of Nursing, but it does not explain what you need to do first. I have been out of nursing quite awhile, so I know I have to take a refresher course. Has anyone gone through this process? Do you have to go through the refresher first, then apply for your license. Also, I never had to do these CEU's, do you have to have these completed before you apply?
Thanks, Cindy

Cindy, I would suggest you make a direct call to the board of nursing. I can't speak for NJ but the three states in which I have worked with in my 30+ years of holding a nursing license have always been very helpful. Sometimes the schools offering the LPN programs can be helpful too. Good luck! I was licensed in a state that didn't require CE's so when I applied in VA through the Compact, it was rather easy for me. I wish you the best.

Hi Cindy,
I went through the process in NJ about 3 years ago. I have forgotten the sequence but if you call the place that you will be doing your refresher at they will walk you through it. The last thing I did was retake the boards and I actually didnt have to do the CEUs to reinstate but a few of the other girls in my refresher course did. You can get the packaged mailed to you or do them online. I think it costs about 40 bucks. i just used the package to renew my license. For me finding the refresher was a big problem, everything else just kind of fell into place.

I called my Nursing Board and they told me what I should do. Thank You for your help.

I was getting told so many things, I did not know who was right. I called the board, and the office that's in charge of reinstating your license. They told me that I did not have to retake my boards, or go for a refresher course. She told me they changed that requirement as of July 2014. They only require you to do the CEU's. She said they encourage you to take a refresher, but it isn't mandatory. I told her I was going to do a refresher because I have not worked in a long time. I found one that's at least close to me. It is at Brookdale College, in their Freehold campus. I hope everything goes well. Thank you for your help, Cindy

Im jealous-LOL. I had to redo everything but they did the right thing getting rid of those requirements! Although the refresher is a good idea if you can do it. Dont worry though it really is like falling off a bike! Good luck to you!

Cindy, you are going to do fine. Just as Mom2mjv said, it's like riding a bike and you are going to be just fine. Congratulations and best of luck to you.
