If you have previously been a registered nurse working in general practice and wish to return to the profession then you may need to undertake a Return to Practice programme. The programme allows you to update your skills and knowledge so that you can become re-registered and return to work in nursing. The course will take approximately three to six months to complete, although some people may take longer (up to 12 months) depending on clinical placement hours required, the length of time out of practice and length of time previously in practice. Courses are flexible to fit around existing commitments, such as childcare.
Health Education England (HEE) will provide a one off contribution to nurses Returning to Practice to assist with costs and expenses such as purchasing books, car parking, child care etc. HEE will also pay for the course for returnees as well as contribute to placement costs.
Applications for Return to Practice programmes in general practice nursing should be made directly to the named person at this university (above). They can tell you more about their course and which local trusts provide the clinical placements. Alternatively, you can contact NHS Health Education England in the North East and Yorkshire on [email protected]
