Returning to practice: Nursing
Ready to reignite a fulfilling career in nursing?
Your experience and skills are invaluable. We can help you return to nursing with confidence.
Do you still have an active registration?
If you have an active registration and have been out of clinical practice for up to three years, we still need you and we can help you come back. Please register your interest with our Surrey Heartlands Nursing and Midwifery team. They can support your journey back to nursing.
If you do not have an active registration?
Our Return to Practice (RTP) programmes make returning to nursing possible, whether you have been away for six months or six years.
It is not a problem if you are no longer a registered nurse. Returning to practice is straightforward, and here is how you can do it:
- If you have got recent experience you can apply to re-register with the NMC (healthcareers.nhs.uk)
- If you have been away for a while you can update your skills through a Test of Competence (healthcareers.nhs.uk) or a return to practice course (healthcareers.nhs.uk).
