"I enjoy my job and wanted to say thanks again for everything. Tell all the new Refreshers that there is hope!!!
- Tamara W. Humble, TX 2007 RN Refresher Graduate

This program was just what I needed to brush the cobwebs off. Not only was classes fantastic but, my preceptors at the clinical site were supportive, professional, and gave lots of practical advice. The support staff was helpful also. I went to several ancillary departments and observed procedures too.

Testimonials: 
"The custom program is awesome. We received over 100 calls from 1 advertisement and mail out campaign on the Nurse Refresher Program. It solved several of our problems at once and the students just raved about how much they learned." - Christus Santa Rosa Human Resources

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for making my courses an experience that I will never forget. You made a uncomfortable situation very rewarding and encouraging. You have made me realize how important my nursing license is to my well being. It makes me who I am. Thank you for making me see how many view nursing in general and how the public holds us in such high regards. No words can express my gratitude. Thanks to all of you at PHES who have left a memorable mark in my nursing career. Thank you. - Sylvia M. LVN 2007 Graduate

Your company is awesome. They were very timely with communication. Always willing to take the time to make sure the healthcare professional is signing up for the right course, and the availability of the courses is what sets PHES above the rest. I had contacted the other names listed on the BNE and some never returned my phone call after I left a couple of messages. Some returned my phone call and said they would send information on their offerings and I never got it. Some had prices that were outrageous. I highly recommend PHES even if it's not required. - Carmen 2007 Graduate

San Antonio(TX) Healthcare System Launches Program To Assist Hispanic RN Recruits. 

Christus Santa Rosa Healthcare, a three-hospital system in San Antonio, TX, has launched the Internationally Educated Nurse Retraining Program to assist registered nurses trained in other countries in gaining their RN license in Texas. Working initially with RNs trained in Mexico, the system is providing English classes, a refresher course in nursing, and a job shadowing program to acquaint participants with the operations of a U.S. hospital. Advertising in the San Antonio area attracted a pool of interested RNs from Mexico, and the first class of 10 will begin their training in March and will be prepared for their first RN job by summer 2006.

Have a concern about the nursing practice of some of your nurses? 

Don’t get rid of them! Retrain them.
Send them to the Corporate Nurse Remediation courses.
The Corporate Nurse Remediation Program provides a proactive internal approach to quality of care and retention. These are state of Texas Board of Nurse Examiner approved remediation courses that educate and remind nurses of their role in Physical Assessment, Documentation, Medication Administration, Nursing Ethics and Nursing Jurisprudence. Optional clinical component is available.
This is a great step to take with minor incidents to show process improvement before or after peer review. The investment you make is far less than what it costs to recruit and orient a new employee. So reinvent the one you have.

Testimonials: " The Nurse Remediation Program was well received by the nurses whom had made errors. They stated that their commitment to our facility increased because we showed we cared about them."
