New revalidation guidance for nurses and midwives now available

New guidance for nurses and midwives is now available ahead of the introduction of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) new rules on revalidation which come into force from April 2016.

The new rules will affect all nurses and midwives working in the UK.

Nurses and midwives can discover how the process is changing, and why, by downloading a set of FAQs from the NMC website.

The FAQs are designed to answer concerns you may have, such as: (i) why is the NMC introducing revalidation?; (ii) what sort of activities count as CPD?; (iii) what will I have to do to revalidate?; (iv) who will approve my revalidation?; and (v) how will the NMC check that revalidation requirements have been fulfilled?

Further guidance will be provided at a one-day conference on revalidation, hosted by the Nursing Times and the NMC, at the Montcalm Hotel in London on 13 November.

Scheduled attendees at the conference include Jackie Smith, chief executive of the NMC.

The revalidation FAQs, as well as more conference information, is available on the Nursing Times website.
