Re-entering the Field / Reinstatement

Refresher Courses

LNA Health Careers offers a refresher course for LNAs looking to get back into the field by reinstating their license. If you’ve been out of the field for a little while, we highly recommend taking this 6 hour course prior to taking the state competency exam.

There is a 98% pass rate for the state competency exam among students who took the refresher course prior to taking the exam. Of those reinstating their license who did not take the refresher course prior to the exam, only 76% passed the first time.

The refresher course will review topics such as infection control, safety, resident's rights, communication, abbreviations and basic nursing skills. All clinical scenarios are reviewed, demonstrated and practiced among candidates in order to prepare for taking the competency exam and for use in the real world.

All refresher courses are held in Manchester at 22 Concord St, and are limited to 8 students per class.

Refresher Course Registration Requirements

In order to be accepted into a refresher course, we do require a copy of the reinstatement application you received from the NH Board of Nursing. To request a reinstatement application, contact the NH Board of Nursing at (603) 271-6282. This is to make sure that you are eligible to take the competency exam and therefore are eligible to take the refresher course. This document can be faxed (603) 647-2175, emailed to, mailed or dropped off in person to our office at 22 Concord St 3rd Fl Manchester, NH 03101. Once we have received your reinstatement application from the Board, payment of $350 will reserve your seat in class.
