You’ve done the training. You’ve got the experience.

So are you really going to let a little piece of paper stop you doing the job you love?

Returning to nursing has never been easier. Our Return to Practice course will refresh your skills and build on your experience. Designed by nurses for nurses, it offers the supportive and flexible learning you need to restart your career.

It really doesn’t matter how long you’ve been away from the profession. The fundamentals of nursing are the same as they always have been. Compassion, understanding and respect are still at the heart of patient care. If you are still registered, you can also use the course to enhance your skills and move into Acute Care.

Financial support is available from Health Education East of England to help you on your way.

Applications close on Friday 1 May so you need to act quickly.

You can find out more and apply now at www.essex.ac.uk/see/nursing-return/ or contact Kath (module tutor), email cpd@essex.ac.uk

  • I have chosen to reapply for my return to practice nursing course, after having a break in my career. I found that after my PIN number had lapsed, I didn't have the heart for the job like I used to once I qualified, however after having some time away from working as a nurse, and managing to get a job working as a health care assistant, I found myself wishing that I could do more, after having a long think and talk to my family and partner, I chose to look into how I can once again return to the register, and have a career that I once loved. I am pleased to say that I have been offered an interview for the return to practice course
