Return to practice

Considering a return to nursing or midwifery? Let’s talk!

Our friendly, caring teams in hospital, community and General Practice surgeries have superb training placements available in a range of specialties. After a combination of excellent clinical training and studies, within as short a time as 3 months you can apply for a Band 5 staff nurse position with a salary of between £23,023-£29,608, plus you can join the NHS Pension Scheme. We’ll guide you every step towards re-registering with the NMC and can help ease you into a role with us. University fees are paid by Health Education England and a £650 one-off payment is paid to you midway through the course.

We work closely with City University and the University of Hertfordshire on the delivery of the programme.

You can take one of two pathways

  • The employed pathway means you will be employed as a paid Band 3 person (£17,787-£20,448) for the placement and theory hours. You’ll work 22.5 hours, or up to full-time hours.
  • The voluntary pathway allows you to complete placement hours on a non-paid voluntary basis at your chosen hours. The Universities will process DBS and occupational health checks for this route.

For both routes, if you successfully obtain your NMC registration then we will interview you for a Band 5 role and can offer various contracts including full-time, part-time, flexible working and rotational programmes. We have lots of opportunities for staff nurse roles across north London so there will be something that suits you, with the chance of trying an area of nursing new to you. After registration, we support your development with an award-winning CapitalNurse preceptorship period.

Please be aware: To apply, your NMC registration must have lapsed.
