Demystifying revalidation

The NMC provides reports from two pilot schemes which may alleviate some fears around the new process

On 8 October 2015 the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) made the decision to introduce revalidation, a renewal process by which nurses and midwives will demonstrate that they are practising safely and meeting the standards set out in the Code. The UK’s 680,000 nurses and midwives will start to revalidate in April 2016.

Every professional on the NMC register will need to provide evidence of their practice and professional development activities, reflect on their work with colleagues and seek confirmation that they have met the revalidation requirements.

Revalidation has the potential to improve professional standards by placing the Code at the heart of practice, enhancing the reputation of the nursing and midwifery professions.
