    Program Details
    Triton College offers a 16-week RN Re-entry program for Illinois RNs who have not actively practiced in recent years, have an active Illinois RN license and wish to return to clinical practice. The first 8 weeks of the course take place on campus in a lecture classroom format to review theoretical foundations. The second 8 weeks will take place at a hospital in the clinical setting administering care to patients.

    Students must complete requirements prior to attending the clinical portion of the class. A criminal background check, physical and drug screen are required. Students must provide proof of Illinois RN license, BLS (CPR) and health insurance coverage.

    Physical tasks include; continuous standing and walking; lifting 10-100 lbs. frequently and over 101 lbs. occasionally; carrying 10 -20 lbs. occasionally, pushing and pulling up to 10l lbs.

    What our students said about the program:
    Overall, I would give a high evaluation for this program: I certainly was challenged, learned a lot and felt supported in the process.
    A lot of thoughtful consideration went into this course. Everything was planned and coordinated.
    The clinical experience was very good. I felt I could start work in a hospital after the clinical experience.
    For me, this course was very helpful and I will recommend it to everybody who wants to get back into the nursing field.
    The online theory is convenient because I could study in my own home.
    The clinical skills lab enhanced my confidence in going back to work in a hospital.
    The hospital clinical was also very helpful; my preceptors were very nice and good speakers.
    I loved the flexibility of the online portion and the materials are great.
    I feel this course offers everything needed to successfully re-enter into nursing.
    Skills lab was a nice overview/review.
    Hospital experiences were excellent.
    Overall, I found the organization of the course to be an excellent review of nursing practice - both online course work and clinical skills lab and hospital.
