How can you make revalidation a straightforward process?

It can feel like a mammoth task to many nurses and nursing associates when faced with their deadline to revalidate with the Nursing and Midwifery Council every three years.

How nurses can prove what they have learned

There can also be confusion about what can be included as continuing professional development (CPD). Do you need a certificate for every learning experience?

These topics and more are explored in the latest episode of the Nursing Standard podcast, which looks at revalidation and CPD.

RCN profession lead for education Gill Coverdale and Nursing Standard senior nurse editor Richard Hatchett talk about what counts as CPD, how to use your own practice for reflection purposes, where to gain participatory learning experience and much more.

The pair, who are both registered nurses, also chat about their personal experiences of undergoing revalidation.
