What is Revalidation?
On 8th of October 2015, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) made the decision to introduce revalidation for all nurses and midwives in the UK. Revalidation is the process that all nurses, midwives and nursing associates on the register need to go through to renew their registration with the NMC. This means that the nurses, midwives and nursing associates will have to demonstrate on a regular basis that they are able to deliver care in a safe, effective and professional way. All nurses and midwives have to show they are staying up to date in their practice and values of the Code by reflecting on their practice and engaging in discussions with colleagues. Nurses and midwives have to obtain confirmation that they have met all the requirements before they apply to renew their place on the register every three years. All 685,000 nurses and midwives on the NMC’s register will go through the new process as their registration becomes due for renewal.
