Returning to Nursing Practice

Navigate every step of returning to nursing practice with this accessible guide

Returning to Nursing Practice offers a step-by-step guide to navigate the challenges of returning to work after a practice break. It advocates renewed career pathways in healthcare for nurses rediscovering their professional identity and confidence. Common features of RTP courses are discussed including updating study and clinical skills and the importance of reflective practice. The book highlights the practical, psychological, and community-oriented aspects of returning to the profession and is an invaluable resource for any nurse considering or embarking on this journey.

Returning to Nursing Practice readers will also find:
* Content designed to re-familiarise the returning nurse with updated healthcare practice
* An easy-to-use and readable style, supplemented throughout with figures and illustrations, and hints and tips from previous returners
* Careful attention to the student and practice assessor relationship, and the value of peer support, and well-being

Returning to Nursing Practice is essential for nurses undertaking RTP courses and lapsed registration nurses considering a return to practice.p>
