Orlando - Continuing Education - Professional NCLEX-RN remediation course
Herzing University is the first nursing school and only the second organization in Central Florida to be approved by the state Board of Nursing to provide this remediation course.
98 Hours Lecture
30 Hours Skills Lab 96 Hours Clinical Practicum
This course is designed for RN’s who have failed the NCLEX three or more times. The Florida Board of Nursing has since expanded the Remedial Course for Nurses who have let their license lapse. New graduates from an RN program seeking a review course may also attend. The RN Review/Remediation Course combines both theory and clinical experience to assist the student in applying the nursing process and essential skills to clients experiencing alterations in their health status.
The focus of the course will be a review of standard curricula for nursing programs including universal principles of nursing care management, legal and ethical issues, maternal child and pediatric nursing, psychiatric and mental health nursing, pharmacology, adult health and critical care. The course reviews the structure and scoring of the NCLEX-RN, as well as suggestions for preparation and test taking strategies. Clinical emphasis is placed on the management of clients in a medical/surgical acute care setting. This course complies with Florida Board of Nursing approved remedial courses.
**Evaluative testing will be incorporated to determine strengths and weaknesses.
