Return to Practice Nursing

Are you looking to return to mental health nursing following a career break?

If you have worked as a qualified mental health nurse and your NMC registration has lapsed for over 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 4-6 months, fully funded and supervised by the Trust, and you would work for us as a Band 3. Upon completion, you will be appointed to a Band 5 RMN post.

For further information, please contact Lorraine Jacobs on 01322 622222 ext 3594, or email

Take a look at the courses run by Canterbury Christ Church University. There is an open day on 10 October. Find out more.
