HCC to hold open house before nursing course

Howard Community College will hold an open house for registered and licensed practical nurses who are not working in the nursing profession at 7 p.m. Jan. 25 in the Lower Nursing Lounge.

Nurses can meet faculty members who teach the college's Refresher Nursing course.

They will also be able to tour the Nursing Lab and Individual Study Lab, where they can view a program that combines video images, sound and computer graphics to simulate nursing problems and conditions.

The Refresher Nursing course begins Feb. 1. It includes physiology, pharmacology and computation, new treatment modalities and equipment, patient education and nursing-care plans.

The course will meet from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and Thursday with weekend clinicals from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The course, which satisfies license renewal requirements of the Maryland Board of Nursing, costs $470.
