Return to nursing

Return to Practice is a programme that enables nurses who have left the profession to re-enter and gain their nursing registration.

If you have been a registered nurse previously but have not practised for some time and your registration has lapsed, then you may need to undertake a return to practice programme in order to return to the profession. The programme will update your skills and knowledge so that you can return to work in nursing and become re-registered.


The universities in north west London currently offering these courses are listed below. In order to express your interest in returning to practice and find out more about the course requirements, please contact:

You can also find out more about each of these university’s courses in the related documents section at the bottom of this page.

Currently, Return to Practice course fees up to an agreed amount are supported by Health Education England's north west London local team if you are successful in your application to university. In addition we offer a bursary of £500 to the student as a contribution towards expenses such as travel, books and child care.
