Revalidation reports

Read the latest data on revalidation

Revalidation is the process that all nurses and midwives in the UK and nursing associates in England need to follow to maintain their registration with us.

Since it was introduced in April 2016, more than 600,000 nurses and midwives have renewed their registration through the revalidation.

Annual reports

We share the data we collect on revalidation every year in our annual reports, which now include analysis on employment, practice and work settings.

We use this information to monitor how the process is going and see where we can make improvements to support the professionals on our register.

We've also commissioned Ipsos MORI to carry out an independent evaluation of revalidation for its first three years.
