Return to nursing

The NHS currently faces a shortage of nurses and in particular those nurses with experience. It is estimated that nationally there are 23,000 lapsed nurses who are potentially available to return to the nursing workforce.

If you have been out of practice and your registration with Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has lapsed you will need to undertake a period of updating your skills and knowledge. The term used to describe this period of updating is called Return to Practice. The aim of the course is to renew your registration with the NMC and to return to practice with competence and confidence to provide high quality care.
