Come back: with Homerton Hospital
If you’ve previously worked as a registered nurse and are inspired by the idea of returning to nursing, it’s never been easier than now. We want to welcome you back to a career that still has care and compassion at its core.
In partnership with City University, Homerton University Hospital can offer you a paid clinical placement as part of Health Education England’s Return to Practice Programme. We will support you to update your skills and reapply for your registration.
We ask that once you have successfully completed the programme and re-registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, you spend one year working for us in a Band 5 role. We can also offer you a permanent Band 5 role at the end of the programme subject to successful completion and registration.
Right now, we’re looking for people who are interested in working in any of our medical wards, but particularly:
- Stroke Unit
- Mary Seacole Nursing Home
Please do get in touch with us to find out how to apply by contacting the Recruitment Department at Homerton.
Frequently Asked Questions
When does the programme start?
There will be regular intakes throughout 2017.
How long does the programme take?
You will need to complete a minimum of 180 hours of practice and 120 hours of theory. The exact length of your programme will depend on how long you have been out of clinical practice. For example, if your registration has lapsed for more than five years, you will need to do a minimum of 300 hours of clinical practice. Please note,
though, that the programme is competency-based rather than relying only on
hours of clinical practice.
