If you have ever thought about returning to nursing or midwifery, now is the time to do it. This fresh approach to return to practice is designed for nurses from all fields of practice (adult, mental health, learning disabilities and children's nursing) and midwives who are seeking readmission to the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) register.
We have established relationships with practice partners across acute, community and general practice settings and have excellent feedback from our students.
This course is for nurses and midwives who have practised for fewer than 750 hours in the previous five years, or 450 hours in the three years before their application for readmission to the register. It is also suitable for nurses and midwives approaching revalidation who have practised for fewer than 450 hours in the three-year period since their registration was last renewed (900 hours if dual registered) or since joining the register.
The focus of the course is on enabling nurses and midwives to regain their confidence and to update their clinical skills, knowledge, numeracy, literacy, digital and technological literacy in a safe and effective way, in order to meet the NMC standards of proficiency for nurses or midwives. A variety of approaches are employed to support learning and assessment, which take into account intended area of practice, personal circumstances and prior learning. Students are expected to undertake between 150 and 400 hours of supernumerary clinical practice in order to achieve the practice-based requirements for the course in addition to any Trust induction.
This module enables participants to:
Intakes are September (for nurses and midwives) and January (nurses only).
The Nursing course is led by Helen Freedman.
In accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Standards for return to practice programmes (NMC, 2019), on entry to the programme applicants must:
Midwifery applicants must also have an honorary contract with a placement provider confirmed before entry to the programme. Clinical placements for nursing applicants are organised by the Faculty Placements team, unless otherwise agreed.
On successful completion of the module, students will be able to demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes, which are mapped to the Future Nurse: standards of proficiency for registered nurses (NMC, 2018) and the Standards of proficiency for midwives (NMC, 2019). The learning outcomes can be applied to all parts of the NMC register.
Learning outcomes are assessed through both completion of a case study and a practice based document.
Applications are invited to all nurses and midwives whose NMC registration has lapsed, regardless of how long you have been out of practice. Assessment of the application will follow with an invitation to selection and interview days as appropriate.
Dates will be confirmed.
Closing date for applications is: 11 December 2023.
Interviews will take place virtually via Microsoft Teams. The process will be discussed with you prior to the interview date.
In preparation for the interview, we recommend that you: Think clearly about why you want to come back to nursing and that you are aware of some the changes in nursing since you left. To do this, it's a good idea to look at websites such as the Department of Health (DH), Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE), Royal College of Nursing (RCN), Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) and other sites as appropriate such as the return to practice website – www.hee.nhs.uk -Be aware of issues related to the health service that are reported in the media.
Prior to interview please ensure you can provide evidence that you have been a registered nurse with the NMC prior to that the UKCC or GNC. Go to the NMC web page and activate your account to be registered online with the regulator. When you attend for the interview we expect to see the statement of entry from the regulator or a print out of your previous registration
