e-Learning resources for Nurses Returning to the NMC Permanent Register

Nurses Returning to the NMC Permanent Register

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) in partnership with Health Education England have curated a collection of elfh and external resources to support nurses returning to the NMC permanent register. Nurses on the permanent register, needing to revalidate, may also find the elearning useful.

In March 2020, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) opened a temporary register, enabling people who had previous nursing registration to work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In anticipation of the temporary register closing in 2021, Health Education England are committed to supporting anyone on the temporary register to join the permanent register, so that they may continue to support the health and care service in the medium to longer term.

The NMC set the standards for re-admission to the permanent register including the need for 35 hours of continuing professional development (CPD).

About the elearning

This public access elearning programme has been curated from existing elearning resources by Health Education England elearning for healthcare and additional, external resources. elearning resources were selected for their relevance to returning nurses from all settings and services, to achieve 35 hours of learning.

elfh resources include, but are not limited to:

  • wound care
  • recognising and managing deterioration
  • end of life care

External resources include webinars by the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN).

By undertaking this elearning programme:

  • learners are encouraged to select and complete the resources which are most relevant to their scope of practice
  • each elearning session can be completed in 20 to 40 minutes
  • a certificate is available to download on completion each elfh elearning session, accessed in the elfh hub

Learners do not need to have an NHS email address to access this elearning programme. There is no requirement to complete all of the elearning resources, once 35 hours of learning has been achieved.
