Come back to Nursing / Return to work
If you have been thinking about returning to nursing this could be the perfect time to take that step. CityCare has all the help and support ready and waiting to ease you back into the workforce.
If you are committed to the concept of equality of healthcare, and if you are passionate about providing high quality care with compassion, respect and dignity, we think you will love working in community health services and we want to hear from you.
We will value the contribution you can make, as a qualified professional, to our mission to build healthier local communities. If you have had a career break to raise a family, or if you've worked in another industry or sector, we recognise that you'll bring with you a host of skills that will help the people we serve and our other team members.
We support the national programme that is encouraging former nurses to return to the profession. Read more here.
If you have ever been a registered nurse previously and wish to return to the profession, then you may need to undertake a return to practice programme. The programme is essentially a period of updating your skills and knowledge, so that you can return to work in nursing and become re-registered.
To ensure that returning to nursing is as simple as possible for you, return to practice programmes have been refreshed across the country so that you can enjoy a supportive, flexible and varied learning experience.
You can now expect:
- Course fees to be paid
- Additional financial support towards travel, childcare and book costs etc.
- Clear information on how to find a course
- Support in finding a clinical placement
- Theory and clinical based training
- Access to a mentor
- Simulation techniques to practice skills
- Preceptorship support
