What is Revalidation?
The purpose of Revalidation is to ensure that Nurses are keeping up to date with their chosen field or specialty, to ensure safe and effective practice. The NMC introduced Revalidation for Nurses to help ensure consistent and high standards of Nursing care in the UK.
Nurses who have revalidated can be confident in providing the highest level of care to their patients, which in turn assists with their career development and delivery.
Under the guidelines set by the NMC, Nurses and Midwives must revalidate every three years on the date they are due to apply for the renewal of their registration. In order to ensure the successful renewal of license, the NMC requires the medical professional to demonstrate compliance with the following criteria:
450 Practice Hours – 900 if you are dual registered
35 hours of CPD – 20 hours must be participatory
5 practice-related feedback from client’s patients and/or colleagues
5 reflective accounts – can be based on CPD, feedback or experience
Reflective discussion – must be with another nurse or midwife
Confirmation – must be confirmed by an appropriate person
You will also need to confirm to the NMC;
Health and character – you must confirm that you are capable of practice
Indemnity – you must confirm that you have indemnity coverage in place
