You misunderstand me, I didn't write the guidance, neither was I saying that a lot of nurses apparently cannot read it and properly understand it - I just read it and completed the revalidation. I guess I must have been in the 50% of people who didn't find it baffling then....
I completed the pilot study. I was clear from the start that my confirmer should be a fellow registrant, someone who understands my area of nursing practice. It made sense to me that my confirmer and PDD person were the same. I didn't have any difficulty understanding what I was being asked to do and found the information I was sent by the NMC prior to completing it easy to understand.
I am a self employed nurse and work as a sole practitioner. I completed revalidation as part of the pilot study. I didn't find it difficult. My confirmer for both parts was also a self employed nurse. The system had a couple of quirks but the pilot identified these and they will be corrected. It was really a simple process. People seem to forget the NMC is not there for our benefit as nurses, it's purpose is to protect the public.
*only a nurse could think of this and give it a label. as a hcw this is what you do all the time. giving it a fancy label will not make lazy nurses any better , and the good ones do not need this nonsense. watch how many adhere to the principals of hand hygiene*
Or any lazy HCW for that matter Rodney Michael Tracey
