The Return to Nursing/Midwifery Practice courses are provided to enable nurses/midwives returning to practice to update both their theoretical knowledge and their clinical skills and to facilitate the attainment of competence and confidence in the provision of nursing/midwifery care.
The Scope of Nursing and Midwifery Practice Framework and The Code of Professional Conduct for Each Nurse and Midwife emphasise the need for nurses/midwives to be competent and accountable for their practice.
The prospective employer may require the nurse/midwife to undertake such a course.
UPDATE: NMBI in conjunction with NHI – Return to practice mail out 5th September 2016
NHI are delighted to have collaborated with the NMBI on a mail out to nearly 14,000 nurses on the inactive register with the NMBI.
The Flyer and letter were sent on the 5th September last with an invitation to make contact with myself by email or phone. I will then advise of the available return to practice courses being run by the HSE. There was also a press release done to raise even more awareness of this initiative.
So far there has been a great response to the mail out with many nurses interested in hearing more about the courses as well as work opportunities in their area. If you are interested in finding out more please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I can then put you in touch with your local nursing home.
Please see below a copy of the front page of the flyer for your attention.
