Entry Requirements

An applicant must have previously been on the Nursing Register and had their registration lapse following a period of three years or more. The School of Health and Social Care will check all applicants' prior registration status and conditions of re-entry to the Register as part of the application screening process, to ensure that the applicant is able to successfully return to the Register upon completion of the programme.

Certain conditions which may have been placed on an applicant from remaining on the register may prevent them entry to the programme. This will be reviewed as part of a Fitness to Proceed process. The successful completion of a Return to Practice programme would only enable an applicant to return to the part of the register they were previously on.
