Nursing revalidation is being launched by the NMC in October 2015, with the first group of nurses going through the new revalidation process in April 2016.
The process has several requirements:
- Registering on the NMC website
- Written reflections on your nursing practice
- Evidence of Continuing Professional Development
- Confirmation of your evidence by a third party, such as your manager
- Discussion about the Professional Code of Practice
The first thing you have to do is register on the NMC website.
This will ensure you continue to be part of the revalidation system. The NMC site will also confirm when your revalidation is due.
C&I has a cohort of 12 nurses who will be the first to revalidate in Spring 2016. They will be helping to shape our Trust wide approach and over the coming months we will hear what needs to be done, and when, from their perspective.
Watch out for our communications around revalidation and make sure you keep informed and take action when required.
From July 2015 there will be hour long briefings for nurses and line managers.
Please book onto one of these briefings by emailing NursingEvents@candi.nhs.uk
In the meantime the NMC and C&I are asking all nurses to register by going online http://www.nmc.org.uk/registration/nmc-online/
