Revalidation is the new process that all nurses and midwives in the UK will need to follow to maintain their registration with the NMC.
Taking effect from April 2016, revalidation is straightforward and will help you as a nurse or midwife demonstrate that you practise safely and effectively. It will encourage you to reflect on the role of the Code in your practice and demonstrate that you are ‘living’ the standards set out within it.
This new process replaces the Prep requirements, and you will have to revalidate every three years to renew your registration.
You will need to submit your application for revalidation online, so it’s very important that you have an NMC Online account.
Revalidation will provide benefits for you as a nurse or midwife as well as the people you care for. It will help to encourage a culture of sharing, reflection and improvement and will be an ongoing process throughout your career.
It is important to know that revalidation is not about making an assessment of your fitness to practise; it is about promoting good practice across the whole population of nurses and midwives, as well as strengthening public confidence in the nursing and midwifery professions.
