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.

The Requirements

  • 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
  • Confirmation
