NMC surveys nurses on revalidation process

  • Comment
The Nursing and Midwifery Council is to survey nurses and midwives over the current appraisal process and their fitness to practice.

The survey will ask the professions how proposals for revalidation-the process of checking whether nurses and midwives are still fit to practice in their profession-should be developed in future.

Revalidation will require nurses and midwives to provide evidence that there are still have the correct qualifications and ability to do their job.

The NMC forms part of the non-medical working group which was established to take forward the recommendations of the government white paper-Trust, Assurance and Safety-The Regulation of Health Professionals in the 21st century.

David Hutton NMC project lead said: 'Nurses and midwives make up the largest part of the regulated health professionals working within the NHS so it's important that we engage with them at an early stage'.

The survey is available on the NMC website and will be open until December 15.
