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
This important and timely conference including updates from recently completed NMC pilot sites, will update delegates 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 enhance public protection.
There will be an extended session on developing the skills and role of the revalidation confirmer – learning from issues and challenges at the NMC revalidation pilot site – and understanding the quality assurance of the decision making process and the competencies needed for this crucial role.
Through national updates and case studies from NMC revalidation pilot sites the conference will help you prepare for nursing revalidation in your practice.
