The Nursing and Midwifery Council is asking nurses and midwives for their views on the new process under which they must prove they are fit to practise every three years.
The regualtor has launched the first part of a consultation exercise on a system of revalidation. Using an online survey, it asks a series of questions on how the principles of revalidation can be applied in different practice and employment settings.
The consultation also looks at potential changes to the content and structure of the NMC’s code of conduct.
Everyone on the NMC register will need to revalidate every three years at the point of renewal of registration.
Do nurses need to be checked every three years? Your comments could be published in Nursing Times.
