Inspired by the idea of returning to nursing? Still committed to care and compassion?

Published: 30/09/2014

If you’ve ever thought about returning to practice, now is the time to do it. 

If you have been a registered nurse previously and wish to return to the profession, then you may need to undertake a return to practice programme. The programme is essentially a period of updating your skills and knowledge, so that you can return to work in nursing and become re-registered. 

To ensure that returning to nursing is as simple as possible for you, return to practice programmes have been refreshed across the country so that you can enjoy a supportive, flexible and varied learning experience.  

If you’re looking to complete a return to practice course, you can now expect:

* Course fees to be paid
* Additional financial support towards travel, childcare and book costs etc.
* Clear information on how to find a course 
* Support in finding a clinical placement 
* Theory and clinical-based training
* Access to a mentor
* Simulation techniques to practice skills
* Preceptorship support 

This fresh approach to return to practice supports nurses on their journey back into nursing.
