Nurse Revalidation

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.
