Return to Practice Nurse

Job Description

We are a pioneering research active organisation and we are proud to be doing things differently; whether that be redefining the shape of the local health and care system through our innovative plans for integrated care, or developing new services such as our Frail Older Person’s Assessment Service and our Medically Fit for Discharge Ward.

As well as creating the future, we also know the importance of providing really good, safe, and caring services for our patients. Our iCARE ethos sets out the principles which every member of our staff works to, ensuring good communication, attitude, respect and care for the hospital environment. Our patients tell us we’re getting this right, with our Friends and Family Test results consistently above 95 per cent (patients ‘extremely likely’ or ‘likely’ to recommend us to their friends and family).

Are you interested in getting back into Nursing? Have you had a career break? Has your registration lapsed?

If you are looking to work in the acute care environment this might be the ideal solution for you! Yeovil District Hospital is offering a fantastic opportunity for Registered Nurses wanting to return to work.

We are working with the University of the West of England to provide courses that assist you to get back into practice. The course consists of approximately 150 hours for Nurses of clinical placement time in hospital, depending on the length of time out of practice and the necessary academic studies to go alongside. This training can be undertaken in a full or part time capacity. Once you have passed the academic assessment and completed the practice requirements you will be eligible to go back on the NMC register.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer any midwifery places for the January intake.

To assist with your travel and study costs, successful candidates will receive up to £1000 of funding.

Once you are re-registered with the NMC and successful at gaining a permanent Registered Nurse Post at YDH we will continue to support you through a preceptorship period to support you in gaining further confidence in your role.

The interview date will be 29th November 2016.
