Nursing and Midwifery opportunities

Our mission is to work together with our partners in health and social care to provide safe, effective, personalised and integrated care for local people, delivered consistently across all services by skilled and compassionate staff.

We’re committed to delivering a nursing and midwifery service that delivers the best patient care. There for our patients, families and services users, the public and each other, we promise to communicate effectively by listening to and responding to comments and concerns. We recognise that our excellent nursing staff are key in enabling and providing compassionate, patient centred care and we need you join our team.

Returning to nursing

web banner

Your nursing skills and experience are needed more than ever before. There has never been a better time to return to nursing and it is easier than you might think.

Around 40 fully-funded return to practice courses are available across England – including at the University of Worcester.

As well as having your course fees paid, you’ll receive at least £500 to help with travel, childcare and book costs

You’ll also get help from mentors and tutors throughout your course to build your confidence and get you ready to come back

The length of your course will depend on how long you have been out of practice, but will take no longer than 12 months

Get back to what you love!
