Return to general practice nursing

The return to practice course for general practice nursing incorporates the main return to practice nursing programme required for re-registration with the NMC.

Placements on these courses are with a general practice with support from a mentor and practice facilitators from the university running the course. 

Open to any previously registered nurse

You don't need to have experience of working as a general practice nurse to apply for a general practice return to nursing course. These courses are open to all previously registered with relevant experience in any field of nursing.

Previously registered general practice nurses are welcome to apply, but experience of being a general practice nurse specifically is not necessary. 

Return to general practice nursing courses are available in the East of England, London, North East, North West, South West and West Midlands regions of England. 

In Thames Valley, Wessex, Sussex and Surrey there are currently no specific Return to general practice nursing courses. However, support networks are in place in these areas to enable students to go through a GP practice with general practice nursing support. You should contact the universities running the RTP nursing programmes to find out more.
