Thinking of Returning to Nursing?

Lincolnshire Training Hub (LTH) is currently looking for former nurses, living in Lincolnshire, who would like to re-register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). You may have been working on a temporary PIN over the COVID vaccination period and perhaps this experience has whet your appetite to returning to nursing? You may have had a break from nursing but are now thinking about returning. There’s never been a better time to think about coming back!

Last year, 6 former nurses were accepted onto the University of Lincoln module and LTH supported them to undertake their placement hours in general practice. All 6 are now re-registered with the NMC.

LTH has developed a comprehensive offer to support nurses who want to return to the NMC register. We are particularly keen to contact nurses who would like to work in general practice. Did you know that:

  • as an RtP nurse you would be entitled to an NHSE bursary
  • we can arrange for your placement hours during your RtP module to be in general practice
  • you will be offered personalised support from an experienced General Practice Nurse
  • we will do all we can to help you secure a permanent role in general practice nursing once back on the NMC register

As a nurse of 40 + years I’d love to chat with anyone who might be considering returning to general practice nursing. It may be an easier journey than you think. Please get in touch with me by e-mail:

We are proud to announce that Lincolnshire Training Hub’s innovative Career Start and Return to Practice Nursing programmes were shortlisted at the 2023 Nursing Times Workforce Awards in the Preceptorship Programme of the Year and Best Recruitment Experience categories respectively. We feel incredibly honoured to have been shortlisted in two categories from a total of 397 nominations and the glittering awards ceremony in London was a fantastic opportunity to fly the flag for Lincolnshire Primary Care

Case Studies

Return to Practice (nursing)

Julie Jones

What was your initial experience of nursing?

I qualified as a registered nurse in adult nursing in 1997. My first role was on a medical ward and following this I moved to coronary care. Sadly, my nan died in coronary care but on a positive note it cemented that coronary care was the right place for me. Following some time abroad in Australia, where I worked in A&E, I moved back to the UK in 2000.

What was your initial experience of nursing?

I qualified as a registered nurse in 2007. My first role was as an adult
nurse and I loved it! Some time later I switched to prison nursing.
Although different to my first role in hospital, I thoroughly enjoyed
my working life as a registered nurse.
