Find a return to nursing course

Training programmes are available up and down the country to support nurses who've been out of the profession for a while. 

Use our course finder to look for a return to practice programme in your area. 

Led by supportive tutors and mentors, the return to nursing programme takes between three and 12 months to complete. 

Your chosen course provider will be able to help you look for a placement as part of your course. You can also use the 'further information' tab on our course finder to find a local trust that offers placements for the return to nursing programme.
