Return to Nursing

Are you a Registered Nurse who has been out of practice for a while? Perhaps your Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) registration has lapsed or you no longer meet the PREP requirements for registration? If so, we can provide you with the support and assistance you need to return to nursing practice. Placements will be allocated according to service needs in addition to consideration of your previous clinical experience.

Successful completion of the course could lead to an exciting opportunity of employment within our organisation.

For nurses who were previously on the Children's Nursing parts of the register the course is fully funded with additional financial support towards travel and learning resources.

The next Return to Nursing Programme (RTP) starts in March 2016 and is run in conjunction with Southampton University. To be eligible for this you will need to:

a) Commit to attending the theoretical aspects of the module with the University of Southampton.

b) Undertake clinical practice (minimum of 150 hours). The shifts will be a minimum of 75 hours per week on an honorary/voluntary basis.

If you feel you can meet these requirements then we are in a position to offer a limited number of clinical placements across the organisation. The offer will be subject to an interview, references, DBS check and OH clearances.

The Isle of Wight is a beautiful place to live with excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Most of the Island is semi-rural with miles of unspoilt bridleways coursing through National Trust woods and over chalk downs. Spectacular cliff and coastal walks can be enjoyed all around the Island.

House prices compare favourably to the mainland and southern England with a wide choice of desirable property to suit all tastes. In addition, there are excellent public and private schools, and shopping and leisure facilities on the Island have improved enormously in recent years.

There are multiple frequent ferry links to the mainland and London can be reached in 90 minutes by rail from Southampton or Portsmouth. There is a regional airport at Southampton, just 30 minutes away, with flights to many European destinations as well as UK mainland cities.

UK Registration

Applicants must have current UK professional registration. For further information please see applying from overseas.
