“Experienced nurses who want to come back to the profession have much to offer patients, employers and society.” Health Education England 2019

“There are over 50,000 registered nurses in England not currently working for the NHS. It takes three years and £50-70,000 to train a nurse, but only £2000 and three to twelve months to retrain a returning nurse.” NHS England  

“In May 2019 we aim to publish the new Return to practice standards for nurses, midwives and nursing associates” Nursing and Midwifery Council October 2018 

“Nursing and midwifery professionals who join, rejoin or stay on our register must meet the standards necessary for safe and effective practice. The return to practice standards apply to nurses and midwives who have:
• not been on our register for some time and can’t meet the minimum practice hours for rejoining the register, or
• not completed their minimum practice hours for revalidation.”

Nursing and Midwifery Council October 2018

“Currently, if someone has time off our register, we ask them to pass a course to make sure they’re safe to practice before they rejoin our register. We've proposed some changes to these courses and in the consultation we asked for views on two new approaches.  
We proposed that instead of going on a course:
We could ask the nurse, midwife or nursing associate to take a knowledge test and a practical test.
We could allow people to prove they’re safe to rejoin our register by submitting a portfolio which could include: certificates for courses, references and evidence of practice. We would assess the portfolio.”

Nursing and Midwifery Council October 2018
