The Department of Health Sciences will start its next Return to Practice (Nursing) course in September 2014.
This course is designed to enable students to get back on the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register following a career break, or to update their skills and knowledge in order to return to a nursing role.
The Return to Practice (Nursing) course will not be confirmed until it has been validated by the NMC and we anticipate this to happen in May 2014. At that point, we will post further details on the content, structure and requirements of the programme on this web page.
If you are considering a return to nursing and would like to register your interest in the couse, please e-mail your full name, address and contact details to the SSPRD Admissions team in the Student Information Service at email@example.com. We will then keep you up to date on further developments and will invite you to formally apply as soon as the course has been validated.
The Return to Practice (Nursing) course is open to all individuals who:
Applicants whose first language is not English must have the minimum English Languare requirements of IELTS Level 7 or equivalent, or must intend to obtain this prior to the start of the course.
Applications will be subject to a shortlisting process, numeracy and literacy testing, and a selection interview.
Successful applicants need to provide a Disclosure and Barring Service check and will have to undergo an Occupational Health assessment prior to the start of the course.
This course is not suitable for nurses who qualified outside the EU and are seeking to gain NMC registration in order to work in the UK. It is also not suitable for former nursing students who never registered with the NMC upon completing their education.
More information will be added here shortly.
