Return to Practice Nursing

Have you ever thought about returning to nursing practice?

Then you're in the right place!

We are delighted to offer Return to Practice Opportunities for Nurses wishing to work in Primary Care

What is Return to Practice?

Return to Practice (RtP) gives people who have previously been Registered Nurses the opportunity to return to the profession by undertaking a return to nursing practice course. Primary care work in partnership with universities to support students by providing clinical placements in GP practices and other organisations.

Working in Primary Care can offer a multitude of opportunities including supporting all ages in the community, deliver continuity of care, liaise with different health professionals and have the opportunity to learn the skills to become a GP nurse.

As part of the programme, students will have to complete a minimum requirement of 150 practice hours in clinical practice (the amount of practice time, varies depending on the length of time out of practice). The return to practice course is a combination of classroom and placement based learning which takes between 3 and 6 months to complete.

Health Education England fund the university tuition fees and also provide a £500 bursary towards travel, childcare costs etc.

Entry requirements:

Students who have previously been on the UKCC/ NMC Register, but whose registration has lapsed (and therefore do not meet the requirements to maintain that registration with the NMC) and students who have an interest in working in Primary Care.

If you are interested in this role please contact the following in the first instance:

Fiona Andrews, GPN Project Manager, Frimley Training Hub – and Anya Makin-Terry, Learning Environment Lead, Frimley Training Hub –


Closing date: 30 June 2021.
