Return to Practice

If you were a registered Nurse, Health Visitor or Midwife but have had a break, then you may need to undertake a period of updating your skills and knowledge before you can return to work in the healthcare sector and become re-registered on the Nursing & Midwifery Council professional register. The term used to describe this period of updating is called Return to Practice (RtP).The return to practice programme consists of a work placement and a theoretical course taught by either Plymouth University or the University of the West of England. Courses begin in October, January and May and the theoretical part of the training will be completed over three months.
