Refund Policy and Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the refund policy?
Courses purchased at FreshRN.teachable.com are eligible for refunds if the following are met:
- It must be requested and issued within 30-days of purchase
- The continuing education credits cannot be claimed
- Less than 50% of the course has been completed
Why do you need 2-3 business days?
The website we use to host all of our courses, Teachable, allows refunds for up to 30 days. They count down to the minute the course was purchased 30 days prior. They lock the purchase at 30 days and do not allow us to issue it after the fact.
The FreshRN® team consists of a few nurses and an amazing executive assistant, however we are not of the size or capacity to have 24/7 constant support to be able to immediately issue refunds the moment they are requested. Like any other business, we need time to process requests.
Will you still honor my refund if I request it on a weekend?
As long as your 30 day refund window does not expire during that weekend or holiday, you should be good to go. Refund requests received during that time frame will be processed during the next business day.
What if my 30 days expire during a weekend or holiday?
We need time to process the refund before the 30 days expires. We cannot issue a refund if the request was made outside of business hours and the 30 day window also expires during that time frame.
- You purchased the course on May 1st
- On May 31st, you decided to request a refund.
- Email request sent at 10pm CST on May 31st.
- When we look at emails in the morning, we see the request but Teachable has locked the purchase, as the 30 day window has closed.
- Refund cannot be issued.
- You decide you want a refund 29 days after the purchase.
- You send an email that day, which is a Saturday.
- Sunday is 30 days after you purchased the course.
- On Monday, when we attempt to issue the refund, we cannot because it expired on Sunday.
- Refund cannot be issued.
What’s the deal with using less than 50% of the course?
Alright, full transparency nurse friends. I get that these are not cheap courses. I know nurses typically have fixed income and are paying back student loans.
However, it costs a lot of money and takes a lot of time to make these courses and ensure they have a level of professionalism, polish, editing, nursing review, and continuing education credits. It takes a long time and a lot of money. I simply cannot afford to give it away or else I cannot stay in business.
Truthfully, you can easily figure out if a course is valuable by consuming just just a few minutes of content within a few days of owning it. It’s entirely unethical and inappropriate to request a refund after completing over half of anyone’s product. When you get to midterm in a college class and drop it, they do not refund for the class. In most cases, CDs, DVDs, books or games cannot be returned to the store once they’ve been opened, because you’ve consumed the content and gotten the value.
We’re not a major education corporation; we’re a nurse-owned small business. We’ve spent a lot of time, money, and effort to create this content, buy appropriate licenses to maintain them, and keep the business afloat. The money we earn goes right back into the business to keep making courses, as we have to pay to create them all up front and hopefully earn enough to cover costs and fund the next course with its sales.
While it may seem like getting this education completely for free doesn’t hurt anybody, stealing our content significantly impacts our ability to continue to create content for nurses, and keep a lot of it free (blogs, podcasts, downloads, mini courses).
How long does it take for the refund to get posted in my account?
If you paid with PayPal, you’ll see funds immediately back into your account once it’s been issued. If you paid with a credit card, it can take as long as 5-7 business days for the refund to post. Regardless, we will let you know when it’s been processed on our end.
Simply wait for an email from a team member to let you know that the refund has been processed! We will first check to make sure the purchase is still eligible for refund (no CE’s are claimed, less than 50% of the course has been completed, and it’s less than 30 days since the purchase), issue it, then email you to notify you.
If you purchase an item on Amazon or from a 3rd party based off of Kati’s recommendation, you must speak with that company directly about refunds or concerns. Kati and the FreshRN® will not be able to assist you in those circumstances.
How Income is Generated
Kati earns income on this website in the following ways: affiliate marketing, course and book sales, advertisements, and sponsored blog posts. Why does this matter? Transparency is important to Kati and she wants you to know when people have paid to be featured on the website, and that she does not take those partnerships lightly. Kati only agrees to work with companies and individuals she believes in.
Kati has ceased the practice of being an ambassador or sponsored by one particular company, as she feels that limits her ability to be honest and transparent. If you do see a sponsored post, that is a stand-alone occurrence and does not include long-term contracts or commitments that would prohibit her from speaking candidly about the company itself or its competitors.
As you read through content on FreshRN.com, you may run across something called “affiliate links”.
So, what are affiliate links and why should I care?
Affiliate links are links where if you decide to purchase that particular product or service, Kati Kleber will get a percentage of that sale. Think of it kind of like a finder’s fee for linking the consumer to something they’re interested in.
This does not change the final price of any items.
The only items promoted, and therefore may contain affiliate links, on this site have either been personally used by Kati Kleber or someone she knows and trusts. It is a part of the FreshRN® promise that we will never promote anything that we do not wholeheartedly stand behind. For example, Kati is an affiliate of FIGS Scrubs because it is her favorite brand of scrubs and what she physically uses at the bedside. Should you click on a link to FIGS on FreshRN® and make a purchase, Kati receives 10% of that sale.
Additionally, nurse educators support one another by offering affiliate commissions on their content. This enables us to share our education with one another’s audience without having to pay additional for marketing, as commissions are provided only when a sale is made. The ability to provide affiliate revenue to one another significantly enhances our reach as freelancers and educators. This is why Kati is an affiliate with Nursing.com, Skills on Point, Nicole Kupchik, Straight A Nursing Student, and the IV Guy. We are all nurses and educators supporting one another, not major corporations.
Kati Kleber and FreshRN.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. It is an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
Kati will always indicate if there is an affiliate relationship at the beginning of any post that contains an affiliate link. She will indicate this before the first link is present, per FCC Guidelines. If it is a social share or email, it will include either the word “affiliate” or “partner,” or one of the following: hashtags #affiliate #sponsored #partner within the email or share.
