Revalidation
​Back in April 2016, NMC introduced a Revalidation process for all nurses and midwives in the UK, whom would need to follow to maintain their NMC registration. The process is straightforward and helps to ensure that you can continue to demonstrate a safe and effective practise. It will encourage you to reflect on the Code of Conduct within your practise and enable you to demonstrate that you are ‘living’ the standards set out within it.
Revalidation is required every three years and your application will be required to be submitted online via your NMC Online account
It is important to know that revalidation is not about making an assessment of your fitness to practise; it is about promoting good practise and helping keep public confidence in the nursing professions.  
The Requirements
  • 450 practise hours (within the 3 year period)
  • 35 hours of CPD, including 20 hours of participatory learning
  • 5 pieces of practise-related feedback
  • 5 written reflective accounts
  • Reflective discussion
  • Health and character declaration
  • Professional indemnity arrangement
  • Confirmation
As an agency worker, do I need to revalidate?
Yes, all professionals practising are required to re-validate to maintain NMC registration.
​How do I find out my revalidation date?
All individuals will have their own deadline to meet and to find this, you can simply log onto your NMC Online Account.
How will Westmeria support me through this?
Westmeria have extensive knowledge and processes around Re-validation and will be on hand at all times to help support you through the process. We will offer you advice and guidance on how best to complete the your application. Should you wish for further information, please contact the team on 01322 282 470

A quick overview of how long you have been with Westmeria Recruitment and your dealings with us during this time
Following early retirement in August 2015 from the NHS, I found myself missing my role within mental health services. Understandably I was anxious about joining an agency following 30 years in a substantive post in the NHS. Having taken the leap, 5 years later I am still with Westmeria.
