RCNi animated guide to revalidation

Find out what you will need to do to re-register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council

From 2016 the way in which nurses and midwives re-register or renew their registration to practise will change under a system known as revalidation.

The nursing regulator, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), is proposing that the first nurses and midwives to revalidate will be those with a renewal date in April 2016.

However, you should be already thinking about what this will mean for you. Revalidation has different requirements from the old system of re-registration (known as PREP).

Here at RCNi, we have commissioned a short animated film to explain what revalidation means and what you will need to do to ensure you are ready for it.

(This film was released before the NMC's guidelines were consolidated in October 2015. The film remains as a guide but the hours of CPD have been updated to 35, of which 20 must be participatory.)
