West Midlands - return to practice programmes

The Return to Practice programme:

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 become re-registered and return to work in nursing.

The courses will take approximately three months to complete, although some people may take longer depending on clinical placement hours required and the length of time out of practice and length of time previously in practice. The courses will also be flexible to fit around existing commitments, such as childcare.

How is the course funded?

We will fund all of the course fees, with an additional £500 of financial support for each learner on the programme.

How do I apply?

If you wish to discuss your return to practice needs, please contact the Return to Practice lead on the RtP National Line: 0121 695 2221 or via email on ReturnToPractice@wm.hee.nhs.uk and utilise the university contacts below.
