Revalidation first quarter data published

First report shows the introduction of revalidation is a success

Data from the first quarter of revalidation published today shows that over 35,000 (91 percent) nurses and midwives due to renew their registration, have now completed the revalidation process.

The data highlights that renewal rates are in line with those seen in previous years, with no evidence of revalidation having an adverse effect on the register. Across the four UK countries revalidation rates are very similar, ranging from 91 percent to 94 percent.

Chief Executive and Registrar Jackie Smith said:

"This demonstrates that nurses and midwives across the four countries are embracing revalidation. Feedback so far is overwhelmingly positive."
