Nursing Appraisal And Revalidation

Venue: ICO Conference Centre
22 Berners Street

Date: 20 May 2014

Synopsis: This conference focuses on the development of revalidation in nursing and developing effective and strengthened nursing appraisal to support the nursing revalidation process.


“The Nursing and Midwifery Council has committed to introduce a proportionate and effective model of revalidation by the end of 2015 which enhances public protection.”
Nursing and Midwifery Council September 2013

“Nurses and midwives will have to confirm to the NMC every three years that they remain fit to practise.”
Nursing and Midwifery Council, 6th January 2014

Jackie Smith, Chief Executive and Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council recently stated that appraisal will form the basis of revalidation and that the NMC are on target to start revalidation in 2015.

“All nurses and midwives on our register will be revalidated every three years at the point of their renewal. Each nurse and midwife will take ownership of their revalidation. Those who do not revalidate will lapse from the register. Those who wish to revalidate will be required to continually gather evidence for their revalidation based on criteria in the revised Code, standards and guidance... The aim is for the revised Code and standards to be launched at the end of 2014, and for revalidation to be introduced by the end of 2015”
Nursing and Midwifery Council 2014
