Information for employers

Last Updated 26/05/2021

Revalidation is the process that all nurses, midwives and nursing associates will need to go through in order to renew their registration with the NMC.

As an employer of nurses, midwives and nursing associates, you need to be aware of revalidation and what this means for you. While revalidation is ultimately the responsibility of the individual nurse, midwife or nursing associate, as an employer, you have an important role to play in ensuring that nurses, midwives and nursing associates are prepared for the new process.

You have a lot to gain: the more your organisation puts into revalidation, the more it will get out of it.

Revalidation is a chance to support, guide and invest in nurses, midwives and nursing associates of all levels and in all settings. Importantly, it provides an opportunity for employers and organisations to undertake a wider assessment of the quality and assurance systems they have in place.
