Dear Donna,

I would like to take an RN refresher course in New Jersey or New York. I have not seen an up-to-date list anywhere. Do you know of one? Schools that used to offer courses don’t anymore, and I think there are schools that do but I can’t find them.


Dear Donna replies:

Dear Michael,

Try this list www.nurse.com/education/refresher.htm. You also can check these additional resources: the New Jersey State Nurses Association (www.njsna.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=309), the New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing (www.njccn.org/returning_direct_Patient_Care.asp) and the New York State Nurses Association (www.nysna.org/education/schools/refresher.html). Beyond those, I suggest you contact the New York and New Jersey state boards of nursing (www.ncsbn.org/contactbon.htm).

Good luck,
