Return to Nursing
Your nursing skills and experience are needed more than ever before. There has never been a better time to return to nursing and it is easier than you might think.
Last summer, the NHS launched its first recruitment drive in over a decade – We are the NHS – with an initial priority to increase the nursing workforce. The £6m campaign led to a 4.5% increase in applications to nursing degrees.
Around 40 fully-funded return to practice courses are available across England. And, as well as having your course fees paid, you’ll receive at least £500 to help with travel, childcare and book costs .
You’ll also get help from mentors and tutors throughout your course to build your confidence and get you ready to come back
The length of your course will depend on how long you have been out of practice, but will take no longer than 12 months.
Course fees are paid by Health Education England. You’ll also receive at least £500 to help with travel, childcare and book costs
