What is NMC Revalidation for Nurses?
Your step by step guide to the FINAL NMC nurse revalidation process. NMC Nurse Revalidation is the new framework from the NMC for nurses to demonstrate meet the requirements to maintain their registration.
Revalidation for nurses is a new framework from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for all nurses to follow in order to maintain their registration and practising privileges. The revalidation for nurses process is the first of its kind globally. It promotes UK Nurses as the pinnacle of nursing care. This is an exciting time for nurses, providing us with an opportunity for further learning, increased respect for Nurses and adding increased credibility to our already established and noble profession.
Revalidation for nurses is the process by which nurses will have to regularly demonstrate to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) that we continue to have the skills to remain on the MNC register. It is a means to demonstrate our commitment to uphold the NMC standards when joining the NMC register or when renewing our registration. Our nursing standards are detailed in The Code – Professional standards of practice and behaviour for nurses and midwives.
The revalidation for nurses process will allow nurses to provide fuller, richer evidence of our continued ability to practise safely and effectively when renewing registration. The Code will be central to the revalidation process. You will use the standards more closely as you will base your professional development on them.
