North Somerset Community Partnership is offering an opportunity for a return to practice placement for registered nurses, who have had a break from nursing and as a result their registration from the Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC] has lapsed. The placement offer will be conditional on being accepted by The University of The West of England Return to Practice Programme.

The academic element of the Return to Practice Programme is delivered by The University of the West of England at the Glenside Campus, Bristol. The programme is taught over 6 days and involves a variety of learning activities including a session in the simulated clinical area to practise clinical skills.

For further information on the academic element please contact ( Email address removed ) or  ( Phone number removed ) .

North Somerset Community Partnership can offer a variety of high quality placement opportunities in our Community Hospital and Community Nursing teams. You will be supported and supervised by an experienced sign off mentor who will work with you to achieve the learning outcomes of the Return to Practice Programme. Successful completion of the Return to Practice programme includes achieving the NMC competency standards in the practice setting and passing a written assessment, to enable your reinstatement to the NMC register.

In return North Somerset Community partnership will, subject to achieving a pass from the UWE Examination Board and NMC registration, offer you the opportunity to apply for a substantive post.

Please note only applications for lapsed registration will be considered.
