Revalidation

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has developed a proportionate revalidation system for nurses and midwives, designed to strengthen the three yearly registration renewal process and increase professionalism. The LCNUK wish to support its members to achieve revalidation and will be providing a range of activities including supporting members through its annual conference to prepare for revalidation.

Revalidation exists to improve public protection by ensuring individuals continue to remain fit to practise in line with the requirements of professional registration, throughout their career.   Built on existing employment arrangements, revalidation with the NMC adds requirements which encourage individuals to seek regular feedback from service users and colleagues, reflect on The Code (revised and published 31 March 2015) and seek confirmation from a third party that the necessary requirements have been met. To see the specific changes made to the Code, visit the NMC website.

The NMC has published  a set of new resources, all designed to assist employers and nursing staff with the new requirements. These include guidance, template presentations for stakeholders and staff, a checklist, case studies, an interactive infographic, suggested templates to support reflection, some FAQs and some short videos describing the process.  For more information click HERE
