Return to Nursing Practice - HESC3050
This double module will assist qualified nurses to assess their current level of ability to practice and will provide students with the knowledge and expertise required to enable them to return to practice as competent and safe practitioners, achieving the competencies necessary, leading to re-registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The module will help students to develop the reflective and analytical skills necessary to apply theoretical knowledge and professional policy to nursing practice and will increase their confidence in returning to nursing practice as competent and autonomous practitioners.
