What is Revalidation?

Revalidation is the process that allows nurses and midwives to maintain their registration with the NMC. As part of this process, all nurses and midwives need to meet a range of requirements designed to show that they are keeping up to date and actively maintaining their ability to practise safely and effectively. Nurses and midwives need to collect evidence and maintain records to demonstrate to a confirmer that they have met the revalidation requirements. Every three years all nurses and midwives will be asked to apply for revalidation using the NMC Online system as a means of renewing their registration with us. Completing the revalidation process is the responsibility of nurses and midwives themselves. They are the owners of their own revalidation process. Revalidation is not an assessment of a nurse or midwife’s fitness to practise, a new way to raise fitness to practise concerns or an assessment against the requirements of their current or former employmenter employment
