Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith
Upon completion of this accredited programme, we will link students with employment opportunities by introducing them to local recruitment managers. Guidance with their selection choice will also be provided to those who wish to further their studies. Successful registrants can use the credits gained from the Return to Practice for further future study (as part of a credit transfer scheme such as APEL).
‘I chose this time to return to practice because my youngest son is beginning full time education. I am looking forward to being able to continue with my nursing career and am excited to have been offered the opportunity to join the Theatres Department as a Recovery Practitioner’ – Sarah Gray, Return to practice student
‘I just cannot fault any aspect of the whole experience. As a bonus I made some wonderful friends, which I remain in contact with. I will maintain my new skills and confidence by offering my services via the hospital bank. I would highly recommend this course it was simply heart-warming.’ – Anita Roberts, Return to practice student
‘During the course, I’ve laughed, I’ve cried and I’ve been motivated to learn. I really do feel ready to go back out again to Practice. I’ll miss my little RTP support groups but it’s given me lots to take forward into practice and plenty to think about. Where the path takes me who knows but I’ve honestly enjoyed!’ Jayne Gay
150 hours are to be worked in clinical practice, with the option of Accrediting Prior Learning (APL) up to 75 hours, calculated on the basis of previous experience and according to NMC recommendations that all returning nurses undertake an approved Programme that includes a clinical element of not less than 75 hours (NMC 2005). The student is allocated a sign off mentor, to support the student in the clinical environment (NMC 2004) and is required to work with the sign off mentor for at least 40% of the time, but can be supported by a co mentor identified by the sign off mentor.
Clinical practice experience can be gained with the NHS/ University Local Health Boards that have an educational audit in place. Potential Placement Learning Experiences (PLE’s) are negotiated at interview with the organisation representative and relate to the student’s chosen field of practice. Wherever the student is placed, focus should be on facilitating achievement of the clinical learning outcomes.
The student will be assessed summatively by a sign off clinical mentor on the achievement of the clinical competencies to the level of “competent” identified in the Clinical Portfolio (Benner 1984).
