RCN members in revalidation pilots urged to take part in survey

The RCN wants to hear from its members in the revalidation pilot sites before submitting evidence to the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Nurses taking part in revalidation pilots are being urged to share their experience of the process with the RCN.

The college has been contacting its members in the 19 pilot organisations in the UK asking them to complete a survey.

The survey includes questions about the guidance which was issued to staff to complete a trial run of revalidation.

Revalidation is due to be introduced at the end of the year. Under the new system, nurses will need to meet requirements, including obtaining feedback on their practice and reflecting on it, to prove they are fit to practise every three years.  

Responses to the survey will be used to inform the RCN’s submission to the Nursing and Midwifery Council as part of the regulator’s evaluation of the pilots in June and July.

The deadline for the survey is June 28.

It can be completed online or by contacting the RCN.
