This important and timely conference will provide an update for nurses working in mental health on the development of Nursing Revalidation and focus on strengthening nursing appraisal in your service in preparation for a proportionate and effective model of revalidation which the Nursing and Midwifery Council has committed to introduce by the end of 2015 to enhance public protection.

Jackie Smith, Chief Executive and Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council recently stated that appraisal will form the basis of revalidation and that the NMC are on target to start revalidation in 2015.
Revalidation will require every nurse and midwife to confirm that they:

  • Continue to remain fit to practise by meeting the principles of the revised Code
  • Have completed the required hours of practice and learning activity through continuing professional development
  • Have used feedback to review and improve the way they work.
  • Have received confirmation from someone well placed to comment on their continuing fitness to practise
