Return to Practice Network

Supporting nursing staff who are returning to clinical practice during the COVID-19 pandemic

This temporary network is to support nurses working in health and social care who are returning to work during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Nurses returning to clinical practice during this period will face unprecedented challenges. By joining the network, you'll be able to:

  • access support from professional nursing and leadership expertise
  • network with peers in a similar situation
  • share best practice updates across the UK
  • take part in hosted discussions on social media

The network will run until the Nursing & Midwifery Council closes the temporary register. Please be aware the network is not intended to provide representation or union support.

Facebook group

Once you've been accepted on the network, you'll be sent a link to join our closed Facebook group.
