NMC Revalidation celebrates its first anniversary

0

Nursing and Midwifery Council Revalidation was successfully launched a year ago in April 2016 and they say the feedback has been ‘overwhelmingly positive’.

Since then more than 200,000 nurses and midwives have successfully revalidated, demonstrating that they can deliver care in a safe, effective and professional way.

According to to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with nurses and midwives saying that it is simple, straight-forward and beneficial to their practice.

The NMC continue to update our resources and guidance, taking into account feedback from those who have revalidated and their employers. No change has been made to the model of revalidation.

How to revalidate with the NMC now includes examples of what will, and what will not, count towards a nurse or midwife’s practice hours requirements.

The latest update to the forms and guidance also clarifies that continuing professional development (CPD) is separate and different from everyday learning and we have published guidance on CPD activities as a stand-alone document.
