“I was forced to leave nursing in 2001 due to disability, becoming legally blind for a time and dependent on a power wheelchair for a decade afterwards. After much hard work and support from others, my mobility improved enough to graduate from the chair. I began searching for an RN refresher course, but couldn’t find one amenable to my impairments.”
“With UD’s RN Refresher Course, students can take both didactic and clinical components or didactic only. Given my physical challenges, the didactic portion was a perfect fit. With practice, the online format was easily navigated. The professors were wonderfully supportive and the assignments were appropriately challenging, especially since I hadn’t written academically since earning my RN almost 30 years ago.”
“Successful completion of this course also gave me the courage to further my education. Thanks to adaptive technology I’m now pursuing a BSN in my home state, maintaining a 4.0 GPA in nursing-related courses so far. After graduation, I hope to teach others how to improve their health with this expanded clinical knowledge.”
“UD’s RN Refresher course provided much more than updated knowledge: it gave me renewed hope.”
