The Southern District Health Board will run a Return to Nursing programme in August for all registered and enrolled nurses interested in going back into the work force.

Nurse educator Maria Baynes said the programme gave nurses who were out of practice the opportunity to update clinical skills and knowledge so they could practise again in a clinical setting and regain their annual practising certificate with the Nursing Council of New Zealand.

The Nursing Council-approved programme consists of 40 hours of theory. Classes will run from Monday to Wednesday from 9am to 3pm with at least 120 mentored clinical hours.

It can be completed in five weeks fulltime or three months part-time.

Participants would be mentored by a senior nurse when they are on their clinical placement at Southland Hospital or in a community setting.

Application forms are available from the Southern District Health Board website under "Join our Team", or by emailing maria.baynes@southerndhb.govt.nz.

Applications for the programme close on June 21.
