Revalidation is the new process that all nurses and midwives in the UK will need to follow to maintain their registration with the NMC. The changes come into effect from April 2016, and is a relatively straight forward process.
Revalidation is designed to strengthen the current renewal process by introducing new requirements that focus on:
Revalidation is due every 3 years and your application for revalidation will need to be submitted online, so it’s very important firstly that you have an NMC Online account.
The new process requires all ‘active nurses’ to collate and submit a comprehensive range of information in terms of process, requirements and practice evidence. The details of the NMC requirements are shown below:
NMC guidelines for all of the above requirements is identified in web based links below. The information and forms provided via these links detail clear direction in how to ensure that you are fully prepared for your revalidation date.
Please do remember however, that whether you work full time for Swiis or work with numerous employers, it is your responsibility to know when your revalidation is due, the timing for completion of your portfolio and of ensuring your preparedness for your revalidation meeting. The preparation for your revalidation every three years is a continuing process whereby you are retaining information on an ongoing basis in readiness for your next revalidation date.
Remember - If your registration is not maintained due to lateness (or incompletion) of your submission, it can take up to 3 months for you to be re-registered and be able to work again.
