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.
How can the library service help you?
We can help you find the best evidence available to ensure you are delivering the best practice and show you how to keep up to date with the evidence, information and research.
