FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is a nurse remediator?

A nurse remediator is one who has to fulfill a judgement given to him or her from the BON. The judgement will include completion of one or more of the following courses:

Medication Administration
Nursing Jurisprudence
Physical Assessement

The judgment may or may not include clinical hours. In most situations, the nurse has one year to fulfill the requirements of the judgement.

What is a nurse refresher?

A nurse refresher can be a RN or LVN who has not practiced clinical nursing for a length of time (check with your state board on the time period), a person who has allowed their license to become inactive, a person coming from another state/country, or a transitioning nurse from another practice area.

What courses must the nurse refresher complete?

There are other courses available which may be recommended by your instructor depending on your past experience and future plans.

The refresher program is designed to update knowledge, current nursing theory and clinical practice, which consist of a didactic and clinical component to ensure entry-level competencies into professional practice. These courses are not accepted for CEU’s credit.

What is a customized course? (Traveling Inservice)

Customized courses are designed to meet the customer’s specific needs. PHES travels to your facility to give the course of your choice. Our customer base includes:

  • Hospitals
  • Nursing homes
  • Doctor offices
  • Childcare centers
  • Churches and more

You can request a complimentary interview with one of PHES’ consultants to discuss your specific needs. The customized material can be given as a one-hour inservice or a four seminar. PHES charges by the hour, not by the person. This is an incredible saving for the customer. All records will be provided for you.

What is a skill competency?

Various types of facilities require that the staff demonstrate specific tasks to show competency.

  • Nursing home staff demonstrates competency in medication administration
  • Daycare staff demonstrate competency in CPR and First Aid
  • Hospital staff demonstrates competency in moderate sedation
  • Home health aide demonstrates competency in reinforcing a wound dressing

All records will be provided for you.

How do I register?

Registration can be done online, by fax, mail, or phone. Registration must be completed by means of the above mentioned methods and submitted to PHES offices ONE week prior to course date.

Can I pay on the day of class?

Yes. Payments are due ONE week prior to class online, or by mail with check or money order and all major credit cards. Payments are also accepted the day of class by check, cash or money order. Although payment is accepted the day your course begins, you must have your registration form to PHES one week PRIOR to course commencement.

What if I have to miss a class?

Requests for rescheduling must be received by PHES 12 hours prior to course date. If not, a $50 cancellation/rescheduling fee will be added to the total payment due.

Do I receive CEU’s?

Texas is now using the language Contact Hours instead of CE or CEU and many of the classes will count for Contact hours for your license. Some of the core didactic does not meet the BON rules. If you do the full refresher program including clinicals you will receive your Verification of Course Completion and 20 Contact Hours.

When do I perform clinicals?

You can only do clinicals after the didactic material is completed. We have over 15 clinical affiliation agreements throughout Texas. You may also perform clinicals at a site near you if the facility will allow and it is approved by the PHES Director of Education. We are also working on affiliations in our newer approved states California and North Carolina.

Where is your classroom located?

We have locations in Southwest Houston and North Houston. Call PHES to find out where a particular course will be taught that month.

Is this nursing school or a nurse’s aide school?

No, PHES is not a nursing school or a nurse’s aide school. PHES is a continuing education company specializing in healthcare courses.

How long will it take me to complete the program?

Most nurses find that it takes about two to four months (six months is the maximum time allowed without prior permission) to complete the program.

How much does it cost?

Please call for cost and be prepared to answer specific questions about your status. These answers help us determine your specific course and clinical needs and we can then give you a cost. For example, there are different requirements for a nurse that is Endorsing from another state, coming from another country, delinquent in Texas, in-active in Texas, or active but, not practicing in Texas. The cost does not you includes all course material, background check, liability insurance, and clinical costs. This does not include the cost of scrubs, stethoscope, TB skin test or CXR, vaccines required by specific clinical sites, or CPR.
