Nursing Revalidation conferences are for Nurses looking to explore appraisal, supervision, evidencing CPD, constructive reflection, and gaining patient/professional feedback.
On the 8 October 2015 the NMC “made the decision to introduce revalidation for all nurses and midwives in the UK: the most significant change to regulation in a generation.” Nursing and Midwifery Council, October 2015.
“Revalidation means that everyone on the register will have to demonstrate on a regular basis that they are able to deliver care in a safe, effective and professional way. All nurses and midwives will have to show they are staying up to date in their practice and living the values of the Code, by reflecting on their practice and engaging in discussions with colleagues. For the first time, they will also have to obtain confirmation that they have met all the requirements before they apply to renew their place on the register every three years....We tested revalidation in 19 sites across the UK, and we are confident that it is achievable, effective and realistic. Nurses and midwives who piloted the model believe that it will deliver real benefits in raising standards and protecting the public... Nearly 16,000 nurses and midwives will be the first to revalidate in April 2016. All 685,000 nurses and midwives on the NMC’s register will go through the new process as their registration becomes due for renewal over the course of the next three years.”Nursing and Midwifery Council 8th October 2015
Our Nursing Revalidation conferences will also provide updates on the new NMC Code of Practice which was published on Thursday 29th January 2015 and came into effect on 31st March 2015
