Return to practice

Your wealth of experience and your life skills are vital for today’s NHS and care sector. Colleagues in practice placement settings are ready to welcome you, make you part of the team and get you up and running as a registered nurse as quickly as possible.

If you have left practice and are unable to meet the readmission requirements set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) or the Health and Care Professions Council (for Allied Health Professions), the return to practice programme might be the right option for you.

Undertaking the return to practice programme can feel like a daunting prospect when you have been away from nursing for a while, but we want to assure you that we understand the challenges, and the team will work with you to give you the best possible chance of success.
