ReSTORE Refugee Nursing Programme

ReSTORE stands for:  Refugee Support, Training, Orientation, Recruitment and Education for refugee nurses living in South Yorkshire.  

ReSTORE Programme Background

The Programme is lead by two clinical nurse educators Blerta and Emma Through Blerta’s lived experiences of going through the system herself, she was inspired to establish a programme for other refugees with a nursing background to join the register of their profession, providing a helping hand in navigating this long and complicated journey.     ReSTORE was established because: 
  • There is a shortage of nurses in the UK (about 50,000) 
  • To help the NHS cope with increasing pressure that it is under  
  • A migrant workforce should reduce health inequalities and facilitate integration  
  • There are no other programmes focusing on refugee nurses, but there are several across the country for doctors  
  • To enable these nurses to return to a career they love
