Nursing and Midwifery Revalidation


COVID-19 and NMC Revalidation News
Nursing Revalidation Covid 19


The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) confirmed their systems and processes on 8 October 2015. This is effective from April 2016.  Revalidation is the process that allows you to maintain your registration with the NMC and demonstrates your continued ability to practice safely and effectively. It is a continuous process that you will engage with throughout your career.

Revalidation Process

Please ensure that you have registered with NMC online and you have an online account.
Ensure that you have checked and know your revalidation date.
Your revalidation date is the end of the month.
You will be notified by NMC 90 days before this date.
Your application will open and you then have 60 days to apply for revalidation.
Your revalidation application due date is the first of the month and this is when you must have submitted your application by as your application closes and you can no longer apply for revalidation after this point.
The remaining 30 days (until the end of the month) is used by the NMC to process your application and renew your registration.
Please ensure that you have paid your annual renewal fee as the NMC will not process your application until they receive your payment. If you have a direct debit account set up your payment will be processed as normal.
Please check the NMC website regularly and keep up to date with changes and updates from the NMC.
Remember you are responsible for your revalidation and your registration is at risk if you fail to meet the requirements or lapse your registration.

Please note that within the NHSCT you should have your confirmation meeting at least 3 months before your revalidation date to allow the confirmer to enter your revalidation data on to HRPTS before 1st of the month before your revalidation date. For example if your revalidation date is 30 September you have until 1st September to apply to the NMC for revalidation. You should meet at least two months before this date for confirmation as the confirmer must enter revalidation data on HRPTS before 1st August. Your revalidation confirmation meeting would then be organized for July.

Revalidation can be a positive experience as you interact more with colleagues and you have a heightened awareness of your professional development.
