Speak to an advisor

This programme is available for people who wish to return to nursing. If you are a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse i.e. Health Visitor please indicate this on your application form.

Please note that if you have completed 750 hours in Nursing practice over the past five years you do not need to complete this course, and you should contact the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to find out about returning to the register.

Many health professionals have a break in their career for a period of time, for a range of reasons such as parental leave, extended travel, through illness or taking on caring responsibilities. This programme supports nurses who wish to return to professional practice after such a break.

The Return to Practice (RTP) Programme is studied at level 6. It offers you the opportunity to develop academically and in practice so that you are in a position to seek re-entry to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

You will complete a minimum of 100 hours in practice. An assessment of proficiency will occur after 100 hours of practice.
