Revalidation is the responsibility of the healthcare professional. 4Recruitment Services will support you during this process.
The process of revalidation is the NMC’s robust answer to helping nurses and midwives demonstrate their continued adherence to the code’s standards of practice and behaviour, and so safeguarding the public.
Effective from April 2016, revalidation will occur in 3 year cycles and without successful you will not be able to practice as a nurse.
Revalidation is so important to all nurses; we will ensure we provide clear straightforward advice and documents to support this process.
What is Nurse Revalidation?
Nurse revalidation is a new process implemented by the nursing and midwifery council (NMC) to improve public protection. It encourages nurses to take responsibility for their continued professional development and fitness to practice throughout their career. It encourages engagement through discussions with other nurses and encourages reflection on the new code.
