Our certificate program offerings include the RN Refresher Certificate for those who are thinking about returning to the workforce.  Have you kept your license active but haven’t practiced in over a year? Villanova has developed a 6-part program to ease your reentry into nursing.

Nurse Manager Certificate ONLINE is for those that would you like to expand their management abilities.  Is it difficult to find time for professional development topics relating to your job? Attend a series of courses that will build management skills for clinical and unit manager.

Continuing Education Courses

My View

"I have been so impressed with the RN Refresher Continuing Education courses. You have done a super job keeping the course costs reasonable and accessible, and the course content relevant and pertinent. Further, you have created a professional, sharing, learning environment. The Guidance and assistance you provide in pursuit of nursing opportunities, experience, and education has been exceptional.

A very needed and well executed program."
