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

Posted on: March 29th, 2021 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) in partnership with Health Education England have curated a collection of e-LfH and external resources to support nurses returning to the NMC permanent register. Nurses on the permanent register, needing to revalidate, may also find the e-learning 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 e-learning

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

e-LfH 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 e-learning programme:

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

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