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 course 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 course will also be flexible to fit around existing commitments, such as childcare.
How is the course funded?
Health Education England (HEE)'s North London local team will provide a one off contribution of £500 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 course fees (up to an agreed amount) for returnees as well as a contribution towards placement costs.
