From 1 January 2016 all Nurses and Midwives on the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register will be required to Revalidate every 3 years as part of their confirmation as being fit to practise. All Practice Nurses will need to ensure they are prepared for this new process, which builds upon their existing requirements to confirm their fitness to practice.
Revalidation will require registered nurses and midwives to demonstrate on a regular basis that they remain fit to practise. All nurses and midwives on the NMC register will be revalidated every three years at the point of their renewal. Each nurse and midwife will take ownership of their revalidation. Those who do not revalidate will lapse from the register.

A new e-learning package has been launched sponsored by Health Education England and the Royal College of Midwives. Details can be found on their website: www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/cultural-competence/
The aim of the Ipswich and East Practice Nurse Forum meetings is to create an environment where you feel supported to exchange best practise; share/learn together through access to relevant educational updates; as a resource for networking and peer support and serve as a platform to create a strong empowered practice nurse presence within Ipswich.
It is essential that we receive your feedback on the events, so we would ask you to please complete the paper evaluation document before you leave.
In addition there is also a link to a personal reflective document, which reflects the requirements for your NMC revalidation.
