All the latest from the NMC. Remember, revalidation is only three months away!
Things are moving fast at the NMC. All the latest news is here.
Revalidation for nurses and midwives is achievable, desirable and realistic, according to initial findings from 19 revalidation pilot sites across the UK. More than 2,100 participants from a range of health and social care settings took part in the pilots earlier this year and many felt that revalidation was a positive experience.

The NMC is currently revising the Code, and is seeking the views of patients, the public, nurses, midwives and other organisations or individuals who may be affected by changes to the Code.
The NMC is currently consulting on their proposed model of revalidation, the process by which registered nurses and midwives are required to demonstrate to the NMC that they remain fit to practise. It promotes greater professionalism among nurses and midwives and also improves the quality of care that patients receive by encouraging reflection on nurses’ and midwives’ practice against the revised Code.
The content and format of the NMC Code will be revised, and supporting guidance specific to revalidation will be developed.
