However long it’s been since you were last registered as a nurse, we’ll make it enjoyable to return to this proud profession. Greater Manchester is offering exciting opportunities to re-join the nursing profession by completing a Return to Practice (RtP) Programme. Financial support is available from Health Education England (and comes with an additional £500 to cover things like books, parking and childcare). Alternatively, you could ‘Earn Whilst You Learn’ and be paid as a Band 3 whilst undertaking the Return to Practice Programme, with our employer-led model which is jointly provided by Manchester Metropolitan University and healthcare organisations across Greater Manchester. We will provide you with education and support so that you can gain confidence on your journey to once again becoming a registered professional.
The course takes around six months, depending on how long you’ve been away and the clinical hours you need to complete. The minimum 22.5 hours per week in practice can also be tailored to work around your commitments. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in all the latest teaching and techniques, on an innovative and exciting course, which prepares you for clinical practice. And then, you’ll get back to doing what you do best – being a skilled, empathetic, experienced nurse.
Manchester Metropolitan University
Manchester Metropolitan University’s Nursing team has a deep insight into the profession – because they’re all registered nurses who are committed to ensuring that students are supported and empowered within their studies.
The course focuses on four key areas. Your ability to review contemporary literature and apply your knowledge; the influences that impact organisations and the way they deliver healthcare; the assessment, design, implementation and evaluation of practices; and competent professional practice and the safe return to practice.
Naturally, it meets the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s requirements. Everything is designed to help you seamlessly move back into practice.
The NHS site has some useful information on coming back to nursing.
