NMC revalidation

 

Revalidation Guidance

The Training Team at Mayday Group Training are committed to revalidation within the healthcare sector and are proud to be a key support for our nurses. Whilst the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) have confirmed that it is the responsibility of the registered nurse to complete their revalidation.

We can help you through this process and provide you with advice and support, should you require it. You will be required to complete your revalidation when you are due to renew your registration with the NMC. The first group nurses and midwives who will be required to go through revalidation will be those due for renewal in April 2016. This step by step guide to Revalidation has been produced to highlight important information as provided by the NMC.


Revalidation and the Code

The revalidation model aligns to the four themes of the Code:

  • Prioritise people by actively seeking and reflecting on any direct feedback received from patients, service users and others to ensure that you are able to fulfil their needs.
  • Practise effectively by reflecting on your professional development with your colleagues, identifying areas for improvement in your practice and undertaking professional development activities.
  • Preserve safety by practising within your competency for the minimum number of practice hours, reflecting on feedback, and addressing any gaps in your practice through continuing professional development (CPD).
  • Promote professionalism and trust by providing feedback and helping other NMC colleagues reflect on their professional development, and being accountable to others for your professional development and revalidation.


Recording your evidence and documents for revalidation

The RCNi, provided by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), offers agency nurses access to online training and training articles, clinical articles, questionnaires and quizzes to test their knowledge. It also has an online portfolio where nurses can upload   documents, evidence hours worked and CPD, ready to print and submit for revalidation. Access to the RCNi Portfolio AND interactive learning resources are available outside of an RCNi journal subscription.For more information on the RCNi Guides to Revalidation, RCNi Portfolio Pack, and RCNi subscription click on the following link: http://rcni.com/workplace/revalidationIf you choose not to subscribe to the RCNi account, we strongly recommend that you keep a portfolio with printed copies of documents and written evidence ready to present at annual appraisals, confirmation, and revalidation with the NMC.If you’re not planning on using the RCNi, we have attached all the Forms and Templates you will need to support you in recording your evidence.
