NMC Guide to How to Revalidate
This is the guide for nurses on the NMC website; you may find more information at www.nmc.org.uk/standards/revalidation/how-to-revalidate.
What is revalidation?
Revalidation is the process that all nurses and midwives in the UK will need to follow to maintain their registration with the NMC. It took effect from April 2016 and revalidation is straightforward and will help you as a nurse or midwife demonstrate that you practice safely and effectively. It will encourage you to reflect on the role of the Code in your practice and demonstrate that you are ‘living’ the standards set out within it. This new process replaces the old Prep requirements, and you will have to revalidate every three years to renew your registration.
You will need to submit your application for revalidation online, so it’s very important that you have an NMC Online account. If you haven’t already, you can set up your NMC Online account here.
We will make reasonable adjustments for you if you have a disability which means that you may find using NMC Online difficult. All up to date information can be found on the NMC website. We also have special arrangements in place for you if you cannot meet the revalidation requirements because of exceptional circumstances. For more information about reasonable adjustments and exceptional circumstances please see our guidance sheet.
- 450 practice hours, or 900 if renewing as both a nurse and midwife

Revalidation will provide benefits for you as a nurse or midwife as well as the people you care for. It will help to encourage a culture of sharing, reflection and improvement and will be an ongoing process throughout your career. It is important to know that revalidation is not about making an assessment of your fitness to practice; it is about promoting good practice across the whole population of nurses and midwives, as well as strengthening public confidence in the nursing and midwifery professions.
