We are delighted to announce a host of new features and functionalities coming soon within Nursing Times Learning
Having listened to user feedback, we are upgrading our learning management system to enhance your learning experience and help you to prepare for the new system of nurse revalidation to be introduced in 2016.
These changes will be accessible to you in August 2015.

The new Learning Passport will enable you to record all the events and activities that count towards your revalidation requirements, and store them in a single place. This will give you easy access to evidence your CPD and to demonstrate that you are adhering by standards of practice in the NMC Code in order to re-register. In addition, you will be able to store all the activities you need to complete as part of your revalidation including:
- Evidence of 450 practice hours
- Evidence of 40 hours of CPD
- Practice-related feedback
- Written reflections on the new Revised Code, your CPD and practice-related feedback

Mobile, multi-device learning
The new version of Nursing Times Learning will work on all devices, adapting to fit whatever your screen size. That means you can use it anywhere with internet access, on your smartphone, laptop or tablet device at your own pace and convenience.
What do I need to do?
You must complete any learning units you have already started by 1st July 2015. Please ensure any incomplete learning units are finished to ensure your records are transferred to the new system. Partially completed learning units will not be moved over to the new system.
All your records of learning which you have completed will automatically be transferred to the new system.
