Health Education England update on Nursing Revalidation

Ruth Auton, Strategic Workforce Development Manager, Directorate of Workforce, Education and Quality, Health Education East Midlands talked about how Revalidation can be used to support the workforce.

"At Health Education East Midlands, our goal is to develop a high quality, safe and sustainable workforce to meet the healthcare needs of the people of the East Midlands," she said.

"Revalidation is about the code, not about performance management. It is about scope of practice, not about direct care.

"It can be quite a daunting and challenging time for some, but any leader will tell you that means it is an opportunity.

"We have a responsibility to all our nursing and midwifery workforce, not just the NHS. So we want to work across our whole health community to do this.

"Have we got some evidence that some NMC registrants will leave the profession. That is a concern for workforce planning.

"We're looking at holding roadshows across the East Midlands. Yes we could go out into the cities, but we need to go out to the market towns. There are a lot of nurses out there that will struggle with this and we need to go out there, working with our partners, and inform them.

"We see one of our key roles is supporting the confirmer or validator. There are going to be some areas where that is not so straightforward. What we are thinking of doing is commissioning some education for that confirmer role.

"It is going to be challenging for some of us but out of those challenges come opportunities.

She called on the audience to talk to their health education boards and tell them what they can do to support Revalidation and how they can help locally.
