Returning to nursing could not be easier with new fully funded programmes in conjunction with City University.

This programme offers you a supportive environment in order to regain your confidence to return to nursing, you will have access to a mentor, support for travel, childcare and finding placements.

Returning to nursing could not be easier with this combination of classroom and placement based learning across six months, during this course we will support you to develop a portfolio demonstrating your skills to be sent to the NMC for your re-registration.

This programme is ideal for people wishing to return part time as you can decide to work in addition to the university day either 2/3/4 days on your clinical placement, which equates to anything from 15 hours to 37.5 hours.  This equates to £ 9,177 pa minimum based on 15 hours or up to 22,944 pa based on 37.5 hours.
