"After deciding to go back to nursing after an 8-year hiatus I needed an approved refresher course to renew my license. Dr. Grant’s Refresher course was difficult, intense and took me back to Nursing school. After working in both NICU and PICU for 20 years I was comfortably in my knowledge. However, after completing her program. My knowledge base expanded in both critical thinking and assessment skills. Her program is well organized, very challenging and the simulation clinical cases were awesome. I recommend this program as a refresher course not only to satisfy BON to renew your license but also for working nurses wanting to switch to med-surg or to go into a critical care program. Now I am definitely going further to do my MSN". Angela C.
"I have not worked as a nurse for 25 years but I did work 18 years prior to that in many settings, but mainly a CVICU. This course was exactly what I needed. The academic portion was well organized and the resources helped tremendously. It was as if I was learning a summary of four years of college in 16 weeks. It was NOT easy, it required focus and dedication. I enjoyed the lectures and also was amazed at the many youtube learning channels there are for future reference. Dr. Grant was spot on when she was explaining the role of the nurse and how important your job is and knowing the "normal" so you can identify the "abnormal". Many aspects of nursing have not changed in 25 years, the human body basically operates the same way and even a lot of the same medications are still being used. For me it was reawakening all the knowledge that I had stored but even better because I had real life experience to add to it. The virtual hospital was my absolute favorite. The patients became very real to me and it made me remember why I liked being a nurse. My skills at assessment have increased a thousand fold from the organized way they experience was presented. I will be a much better nurse in the future because of the holistic approach and the value of a thorough assessment when taking care of patients. Dr. Grant is extremely knowledgeable and gives pertinent examples all through the course. She is strict and I wouldn't have it any other way. I started this course on April 21 and finished August 11, 2020 because I was on Self-Study and also had to work while taking this course. It really takes complete immersion to get the most out of this if you have been out of nursing for a while, but I can promise you when you get done, you will have the confidence to go out there and be a Nurse again!" Lynn C.
