00016860Inspired by the idea of returning to nursing? Still committed to care and compassion? If you’ve ever thought about returning to practice, now is the time to do it.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust is supporting a national campaign to promote nursing return to practice, working with local education providers and to offer fantastic employment opportunities on completion.

If you have been a registered nurse previously and wish to return to the profession, then you may need to undertake a return to practice programme. The programme is essentially a period of updating your skills and knowledge, so that you can return to work in nursing and become re-registered.

To ensure that returning to nursing is as simple as possible for you, return to practice programmes have been refreshed so that you can enjoy a supportive, flexible and varied learning experience.

If you’re looking to complete a return to practice course, you can now expect:

  • Course fees to be paid
  • Additional financial support towards travel, childcare and book costs etc.
  • Clear information on how to find a course
  • Support in finding a clinical placement
  • Theory and clinical-based training
  • Access to a mentor
  • Simulation techniques to practice skills
  • Preceptorship support

This fresh approach to return to practice supports nurses on their journey back into nursing.
