Fourth quarter revalidation report demonstrates continued success

Revalidation report now available to read online

Revalidation has recently celebrated its one year anniversary and today the NMC has published its fourth quarterly report. The final quarter of the first year has continued to show how successful revalidation has been with 48,598 nurses and midwives renewing their registration during this period.

Throughout this quarter 93 percent of those who were due to revalidate have done so successfully and there is no sign that revalidation has had an adverse effect on the register. So far over 200,000 nurses and midwives have successfully revalidated with the NMC.

Jackie Smith, NMC Chief Executive and Registrar said:

“The first year of revalidation has been a resounding success. Nurses, midwives and employers continue to praise the programme and are seeing the real benefits that it can bring.

“In a few months’ time we will be publishing our first revalidation annual report which will look back on the first year in more detail. We will also be publishing early findings from our three year evaluation of revalidation.

“With two thirds of our register still to go through process we know how important it is that we continue to support nurses and midwives and we are committed to listening and responding to feedback along the way.”

The Fourth quarter revalidation report is available to read on our site.
