NMC revalidation

All nurses and midwives registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), are required to re-register (renew) every three years, otherwise they will be removed from the register. The new process includes the requirement to undergo revalidation.

Revalidation is the process that all nurses, midwives and specialist community public health nurses will need to go through, to demonstrate that they continue to practise safely and effectively.  The new system will replace PREP from April 2016.
