Return to Practice Programme

Our courses will update your skills and refresh your knowledge at Level 6 within a supportive, flexible and varied learning environment.

Our Return to Practice programme is designed for:

UK nurses whose registration with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) has lapsed and are looking to return to the nursing profession or nurses from the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA), who have been instructed by the NMC to complete a Return to Practice course to become eligible for registration with the NMC and seek employment in the UK.

Our Return to Practice programme includes a 12 to 15 week placement at two shifts a week in addition to university attendance of one full day a week for 12 weeks and homework.

You can choose from three career specific pathways:

Adult Nursing

This course is designed to enable you to regain the confidence, knowledge, skills and behaviours required to return to the workforce as a competent and safe practitioner. The transition to becoming a registered nurse is the focus of the module and includes processes associated with the development of competence in the relevant field of nursing, namely adult nursing. The use of evidence to underpin practice development from a personal and professional perspective is explored, debated and applied within their clinical setting. Successful completion of the supervised practice period, in conjunction with the theoretical component of the module, enables the student to be recommended to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for entry onto the professional register.

WEBNBUTYRTYER

Children's Nursing

During this course, you will develop a range of skills covering analysis, critical thinking, problem solving and reflective practice, which are necessary to provide evidence-based, holistic care of the child and their family. The assessment strategies within this module encourage and facilitate the development of computer and information technology literacy, i.e. the use of online resources to develop numeracy skills and the use of work processing software for a reflective assignment. Through supervised learning in practice you will acquire clinical competence and awareness of the health and social care needs of your local population.

WEBNBUTYRTYER

Mental Health Nursing

The transition to becoming a registered nurse is the focus of the module and includes processes associated with the development of competence in the relevant field of nursing, namely mental health nursing.
