Revalidation came into effect in April 2016, and is a relatively straight forward process. Revalidation was designed to strengthen the renewal process by introducing new requirements that focus on:
- Up-to-date practice and professional development;
- Reflection on the professional standards of practice and behaviour as set out in the Code; and
- Engagement in professional discussions with other registered nurses or midwives.
Revalidation is due every 3 years and your application for revalidation will need to be submitted online, so it’s very important firstly that you have an NMC Online account.
