Return to practice and overseas nursing

Return to practice nurses

We currently offer placements to return to practice (RtP) nurses who have university places at Kingston and Greenwich universities.
 
The RtP students must first contact the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) who will give them a statement that will outline what is required for them to complete to re-join the NMC register. The next stage is contacting the university to make an application.

Health Education South London are currently running the ‘Come back to nursing’ campaign to encourage nurses who have previously been registered with the NMC to regain their PINs (NMC issue nurses and midwives with a unique identifying number).  This campaign provides funding for the students’ courses, placements and a bursary for the student while they are completing the placement. This funding is organised through the universities.

The university information can be found at the links below:
