Return to Practice

If you have worked as a qualified mental health nurse and your NMC registration has lapsed for more than 12 months, KMPT can offer you an excellent opportunity to update your skills on a Return to Practice course while working for us. We are looking to recruit nurses to coincide with return to practice courses.

The programme lasts four-six months, is fully-funded and supervised by the trust and you would work for us as a Band 3. Upon completion, you would be appointed to a Band 5 RMN post.

For further information, please contact Lorraine Jacobs at lorraine.jacobs@nhs.net
