UNC-Chapel Hill Offers Discount for Online Nurse Refresher Program to Help Address North Carolina’s Nursing Workforce Needs
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is helping to address the state’s nursing shortage by offering a discounted, accelerated version of their online, self-paced Registered Nurse Refresher theory course.
This program is a collaboration between UNC-Chapel Hill Digital and Lifelong Learning, UNC-Chapel Hill School of Nursing and the North Carolina Area Health Education Centers Program.
The accelerated RN Refresher program is designed to help trained and licensed nurses quickly get back into the field as COVID-19 caused a surge in the state’s need for health care personnel. Historically, the theory course takes up to nine months to complete. To graduate nurses in time to meet the highest need, the accelerated version must be completed in three months. The condensed timeframe provides nurses the same breadth of knowledge and training in the most updated technology and approaches.
