Revalidation: Latest Update on Practice Reflection from NMC

Revalidation: Practice Reflection…

…is a mandatory component of NMC nurse revalidation.  Practice reflection will now need to be completed under a different title known as Reflective Discussion. Practice reflection is often seen as one of the most daunting components of NMC nurse revalidation but we have simplified the process for you.

The new NMC Nurse Revalidation guidance states: “You are not required to submit these forms to the NMC at any point in the revalidation process. There is no requirement to store them electronically or upload them into NMC Online as part of your application, or if you are selected to provide further information to verify your evidence. You should make sure that your reflective discussion and confirmation forms are completed, stored or shared in manual, paper form, as opposed to electronically. This is important because creating, storing or sharing these data by electronic means may trigger an obligation to register with the Information Commissioner because they contain identifying information about another NMC-registered nurse or midwife or your confirmer.”
