Nurse Revalidation CPD Update on Requirements for NMC Revalidation
Every nurse in the UK who wishes to stay on the Nursing register and to legally be able to work in the UK, must now engage in Nurse Revalidation. There is a lot of confusion about what is required and what this means for nurses. Nursing Matters has put together several articles and videos throughout our site to explain Nurse Revalidation and to help you throughout the process to get ready for Nurse revalidation.
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is a mandatory requirement of NMC Nurse Revalidation. As a mandatory component of Nurse Revalidation, you will now be required to record your process of tracking and documenting skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work. For Nurse Revalidation, your CPD activity must be linked to the Code and the outcome of the CPD activity must contribute to keeping you up to date within your scope of practice.
The NMC has now finalised the CPD requirements for Nurse Revalidation. The change in CPD Hours for Nurse Revalidation will now be 35 hours (was previously 40 hours). Of the 35 hours that are required you must evidence 20 participatory hours. Please watch and share the video below which explains all you need to know about CPD for Nurse Revalidation.
