Moonrise helping with Revalidation
Following the introduction of Revalidation for Nurses by the NMC here at Moonrise we are working together with our nurses to support them through the preparation of their portfolios so that evidence can be submitted in time and all nurses retain their registrations.
What is Revalidation?
Revalidation is the new process that all nurses and midwives in the UK will need to follow to maintain their registration with the NMC.
It started in April 2016, and is straightforward and will help you as a nurse or midwife demonstrate that you practise safely and effectively. It will encourage you to reflect on the role of the Code in your practice and demonstrate that you are ‘living’ the standards set out within it.
This new process replaces the Prep requirements, and you will have to revalidate every three years in order to renew your registration.
You will need to submit your application for revalidation online, so it’s very important that you have an NMC Online account. If you haven’t already, you can set up your NMC Online account here.
The NMC will make reasonable adjustments for you if you have a disability which means that you may find using NMC Online difficult. They also have special arrangements in place for you if you cannot meet the revalidation requirements because of exceptional circumstances. For more information about reasonable adjustments and exceptional circumstances please see our guidance sheet.
- 450 practice hours, or 900 if you are renewing as both a nurse and midwife
- 35 hours of CPD including 20 hours of participatory learning
- Five pieces of practice-related feedback
- Five written reflective accounts
- Reflective Discussion
- Health and character declaration
- Professional indemnity arrangement

Why I left my management job to set up my own care agency
Some might say ‘why leave a good, well paid job to set up your own business’. Well maybe this will help you understand why!
Managing a nursing care recruitment agency allows me to deliver good, quality care to clients whilst giving me the flexibility to look after my family. Yes, there are long hours and tight deadlines to meet, yes I need to make sure that all staff are fully trained to meet client requirements but I love what I do!
My day usually starts around 6am, I have a quick shower, breakfast and then set out to pick staff working that day and drop them off. The drive is a great opportunity to plan my day.
I am the registered Manager for Moonrise 24hr Recruitment, a specialist domiciliary and care provider. We run our services for care homes, hospitals, home care and rehabilitation support for people recovering from acute illness or surgery to palliative care.
Most mornings when we all get into the office, John, Anna, Charity and I will discuss our clients and any staff issues before we start our day. We hold a weekly meeting to discuss the business and review any action plans to be able to meet with Care Quality standards.
My lunch is never organised, it usually involves grabbing a sandwich at my desk while working on the day’s shifts, contacting clients and updating legislative documents.
Each day is never the same, there is so much variety, and responsibility and its a very rewarding industry to be in.
I try to leave work around 5.30pm, but today I stayed back to complete my daily tasks, Bedtime is when I am able to shut my eyes and switch off from work.
It’s an excellent job and I have no regrets about leaving my previous employment. My fabulous team are supporting me to build the business and provide quality care for our clients. That’s what we believe at Moonrise 24hr Recruitment.
Before starting my business, I was a manager in the private sector. I worked alongside other care agencies and witnessed some good and some bad practice. I took what I’ve learnt over the years, good and bad and decided to leave my job (without having anything lined up might I add), took some time to consider my options and then made the career change and set up Moonrise 24hr Recruitment.
And the name, Moonrise 24hr Recruitment was all down to my nine-year-old son.
