  • Comment on: NMC Revalidation: FAQs

    Sarah Dearden's comment 7 August, 2016 9:55 pm

    I have tried so hard to remain in the profession after some very difficult experiences. After working as a Registered Nurse for 13 years I was bullied by my manager. I spoke up about it and then had to work with her for the first 15 months of a very long investigation. My life was a living hell but I did not turn a blind eye to it as patients were also being bullied by her. She was eventually moved and I was asked to act up to her role with no other nurse help and no teaching or support. I continued to ask for help and with the help of my union rep and the RCN I fought a very difficult legal battle which took its toll on my health as all the managers involved made my life difficult as they though I was a trouble maker for speaking up. It was eventually made impossible for me to stay in my job and I left. I recently started a new job but have so much to think about and have a health condition which is made worse by stress. I have decided not to revalidate as I believe I have worked hard enough and having to do this is the final straw. I need to stay well for the sake of myself, my husband, my son and my step children.
