Come Nurse with us…

Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust is pleased to offer an NMC validated Return to Practice Programme for both Adult and Child registration. The course is provided in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University and is for qualified Nurses whose registration with the NMC has lapsed. This is an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic qualified Nurses wishing to return to the nursing profession.

Please note, unfortunately this programme is not suitable for nurses registered overseas wishing to gain NMC registration in the UK.

The Return to Professional Practice for Nursing programme will prepare you for return to today’s working environment by providing education that is both practice and classroom based. It has been validated by the NMC to enable those Practitioners whose registration has lapsed to return to practice with the contemporary skills, knowledge and competence required in the present healthcare climate.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
