The course content covers:
This Return to Practice Level 3 programme is for qualified nurses (adult, child, mental health and learning disabilities) and SCPHN who have lapsed registration and wish to return to practice and re-register with the NMC.
Provision of Return to Practice (RTP) has recently changed to an employer led model with places commissioned by Health Education South West (HeSW).
In conjunction with UWE Bristol, healthcare organisations such as NHS Trusts, GP practices and independent providers will be supporting Nurses and Health Visitors to return to practice, with the potential of employment on successful completion of the programme.Â
Due to social distancing measures, currently, the theory part of the programme is delivered online. From January 2018, a Return to Practice for GP Nurses is also available with additional skills teaching - focusing on clinical skills specific to primary care.
The theory part of the programme runs over six consecutive weeks with live online sessions on Mondays and Fridays between 09:00 and 12:30. We have three intakes for this programme a year starting in January, May or September.

Learning and Teaching
The theory part of the programme is designed to support RTP students in updating their knowledge and skills on contemporary nursing practice. The theoretical aspect of the programme is run alongside a practice placement where returnees will complete practice competencies that meet the NMC outcomes that are required to be eligible to return to practice; these are:-
In addition to the practice outcomes, you will be required to pass an academic assignment at level 3, which is based on reflective practice. You will also need to compile a professional portfolio of evidence and pass a numeracy assessment to complete the programme.
You'll have access to a range of on-campus and online facilities to support your learning, including the University Library which is open 24 hours a day.
The Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences has an excellent reputation for the quality of its teaching and the facilities it provides.
