Nursing revalidation

NCL Wide

As stated by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC), every registered nurse and midwife “must have undertaken 35 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) relevant to their scope of practice in the three year period since their registration was last renewed, or since they joined the register. Of those 35 hours of CPD, at least 20 must have included participatory learning”.

You must also maintain accurate and up-to-date records of CPD you have undertaken; this can be done via MedAll (read below) or using templates available on the NMC website. Visit the NMC website for more information and to access the templates (see right).
