Welcome to the Nurse Refresher Program

The Nurse Refresher Program (NRP) has three focus areas, to:

  1. Update formerly licensed nurses to meet current professional practice standards and to re-activate their nursing license and return to practice.
  2. Provide continuing education to currently licensed nurses who may not have been engaged in active nursing practice and who wish to return to active practice.
  3. Provide education about the LPN scope of practice to registered nursing students who wish to license as a practical nurse based on their RN education program and become licensed by exception as LPNs.

The content of the NRP is owned by Idaho Alliance of Leaders in Nursing (IALN, d/b/a Idaho Center for Nursing) and managed by Nurse Leaders of Idaho (NLI). The NLI Education Committee and a faculty consultant nurse educator provide guidance and direction to the NRP.
