Aims/Description: This Return to Practice programme is suitable for qualified nurses whose NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) registration has lapsed for more than 3 years. It is especially designed for those interested in a future career in primary care, general practice or community. This programme is validated by the NMC to prepare `returners' to become safe, competent, confident nurses who are able to meet the demands of practice and equipped to offer effective nursing care. Following successful completion, `returners' will be able to apply for re-registration with the NMC.

Restrictions on availability: Students must have qualified as a nurse and their registration with the NMC lapsed for at least 3 years.
