Nurse & Midwife Revalidation

What is revalidation?


Revalidation is a process that all nurses and midwives working in the UK will need to engage with to demonstrate that they practice safely and effectively and is aimed at helping nurses and midwives develop as professionals. All nurses and midwives are required to revalidate every three years in order to renew their registration. 


The links and resources below are designed to help staff understand and follow the process easily. All nurses and midwives will need to submit their revalidation application electronically through an online account. You can set up your NMC Online account here.
