Revalidation reports

Revalidation quarterly data reports

Revalidation was introduced in April 2016 and is the new process that all nurses and midwives will need to go through in order to demonstrate that they are practising safely and effectively in line with the Code. Over the course of the next three years all 690,000 nurses and midwives on our register will go through the process.

We have committed to publishing data reports quarterly and annually, in recognition of the strong interest in revalidation and in the interests of transparency and accountability.

Revalidation annual data report

This is the first of our annual data reports on revalidation. In this report we seek to provide further insights into issues such as scope of practice, work setting, employment type, choice of confirmer, access to appraisals, and how we verify revalidation applications.


Independent evaluation of revalidation for Nurses and Midwives

We have commissioned Ipsos MORI to conduct an independent evaluation of revalidation for nurses and midwives. The evaluation runs alongside the first three years of revalidation, publishing reports on an annual basis.
