Requirements for NMC revalidation

9. What happens if I don’t complete my revalidation?

 If you don’t submit your revalidation application in time your registration will lapse which means that it will be illegal for you to practice as a nurse.To return onto the register you will have to apply for readmission which could take up to six weeks. If you submit your revalidation application in time but it is refused because you have failed to meet your revalidation requirements, you can appeal this decision within 28 days of the date on your decision letter.
