This module enables previously NMC registered nurses to re-examine their role and professional responsibilities as they prepare to return to the full register. The students will explore contemporary themes in modern nursing/healthcare, underpinned by relevant evidence. Clinical/practical skills will be refreshed in preparation for their renewed role in the clinical workplace. The RTP module offers a flexible and accessible approach to empowering students to renew their confidence in providing patient-centred care in the field of Adult Nursing.
This module also provides RTP students access to a clinical placement to enable them return to the clinical environment in a supportive and supervised manner. Our Practice Partners will arrange the placement and we will involve the student with these arrangements to ensure they have a placement that can be flexible with their personal circumstances. The practice placement is fundamental to developing and achieving all the identified practical nursing and clinical skills necessary to return to the register.

*Subject to NMC approval and revalidation. As part of its continuous quality assurance and enhancement, the University reviews its courses on a regular basis to ensure that they reflect the needs of students and employers. Periodic review of the existing programmes is required every five years and major changes may be made to the programmes during the re-validation process. As soon as the programmes are re-validated the details of the course will be confirmed. The majority of courses that are still ‘subject to re-validation’ are approved by the validation process; however, this is not guaranteed and should the course not go ahead as planned, or be significantly amended, you will be informed by the university and assistance will be provided to those who have been offered a place to find a suitable alternative course either at Wrexham Glyndwr University or at another provider.
