First nurses and midwives begin their revalidation applications
Almost 2,500 nurses and midwives have begun the revalidation application process
More than 15 percent of nurses and midwives with an April revalidation date have already started their application, two months ahead of their deadline.
Almost 2,500 nurses and midwives with an April revalidation date have logged into their online account and begun the process and more than 700 of these have already completed their revalidation applications. Every nurse and midwife on the 685,000-strong register will be required to go through revalidation when they are due to renew their registration over the next three years.
More than 80 percent of those on the register have now signed up for an NMC Online account, which they will need to submit their application. We are encouraging everyone to sign up as early as possible for an account, regardless of when they are due to revalidate.
Marcela, a practice nurse from a GP surgery, who was the first person to submit her revalidation application, described revalidation as “the best thing that could have happened to nurses”.
The new revalidation microsite has already attracted over 200,000 hits.
