Whilst the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) have confirmed that it is the responsibility of the registered nurse to complete their revalidation, Vitality24 believes that we should be supporting you as much as possible.

Revalidation - A Step by Step Guide

Our step by step guides to Revalidation have been produced to highlight important information as provided by the NMC. We publish regular updates, news and guides on this website and through emails, making the process as clear and straightforward as possible, so that you can revalidate and focus on continuing your practice as a registered nurse.

Revalidation Guidance

Vitality24 is committed to revalidation within the healthcare sector and is proud to be a key support for our nurses. We have updated our appraisal documentation to reflect the revalidation process and created a range of resources, including a Vitality24 Revalidation Pack of Templates, to support you through revalidation.

You will be required to complete your revalidation when you are due to renew your registration with the NMC. The first group nurses and midwives who will be required to go through revalidation will be those due for renewal in April 2016. This step by step guide to Revalidation has been produced to highlight important information as provided by the NMC.

Revalidation and the Code

The Revalidation Model Aligns to the Four Themes of the Code
Prioritise people by actively seeking and reflecting on any direct feedback received from patients, service users and others to ensure that you are able to fulfil their needs. Practise effectively by reflecting on your professional development with your colleagues, identifying areas for improvement in your practice and undertaking professional development activities. Preserve safety by practising within your competency for the minimum number of practice hours, reflecting on feedback, and addressing any gaps in your practice through continuing professional development (CPD). Promote professionalism and trust by providing feedback and helping other NMC colleagues reflect on their professional development, and being accountable to others for your professional development and revalidation.

Recording your Evidence and Documents for Revalidation
Recording your evidence and documents for revalidation The RCNi, provided by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), offers agency nurses access to online training and training articles, clinical articles, questionnaires and quizzes to test their knowledge. It also has an online portfolio where nurses can upload documents, evidence hours worked and CPD, ready to print and submit for revalidation. Access to the RCNi Portfolio AND interactive learning resources are available outside of an RCNi journal subscription.

For more information on the RCNi Guides to Revalidation, RCNi Portfolio Pack, and RCNi subscription click on the following link: https://rcni.com/workplace/revalidation

If you choose not to subscribe to the RCNi account, we strongly recommend that you keep a portfolio with printed copies of documents and written evidence ready to present at annual appraisals, confirmation, and revalidation with the NMC.

If you’re not planning on using the RCNi, we have attached all the Forms and Templates you will need to support you in recording your evidence.

Requirements for NMC Revalidation

1. Practice hours

You must be able to evidence that you have worked 450 practice hours over the three years prior to the renewal of your registration.

The NMC have confirmed that if you have practised for less than the required number of hours in the three years prior to the date of your application for renewal of your registration, then you must successfully complete an appropriate return to practice programme approved by the NMC before the date of your application for renewal of registration.

If you are selected to provide further information to verify your declaration within your application, you will be asked to provide the following:

  • Dates of practice;
  • The number of hours you undertook;
  • Name, address and postcode of the organisations;
  • Scope of practice;
  • Work setting;
  • A description of the work you undertook; and evidence of those practice hours, such as timesheets, job specifications and role profiles.
  • So please ensure that you record these in preparation.

2. Continuing professional development (CPD)

You must be able to evidence 35 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) which is relevant to your practice as a nurse and over the three years prior to the renewal of your registration. 20 hours must be through participatory learning.

You must maintain accurate records of the CPD you have undertaken. These records must contain:

  • The CPD method;
  • A description of the topic and how it related to your practice;
  • The dates on which the activity was undertaken;
  • The number of hours (including the number of participatory hours);
  • The identification of the part of the Code most relevant to the activity; and
  • Evidence that you undertook the CPD activity.

The NMC do not list a particular type of CPD and it is your responsibility to judge what learning activity would be best suited to your individual practice.

3. Practice Related Feedback

You must present at least five pieces of practice related feedback. The feedback can be informal / formal, written or verbal and from a number of sources including patients, service users, students and colleagues. If you do obtain practice related feedback from a patient, please remember to get their consent first and anonymise the content. You can collect feedback based on your individual performance or on your team, unit, ward or organisation’s performance. However, you will need to be clear on how this has specifically impacted your individual performance.

Format of Feedback Collected:
Feedback can be received verbally or written, formal or informal and it does not need to be from fellow nurses or midwives. It could be from colleagues in management, on reception, office administration, or fellow teachers and
academics.

ICARE 24 Group Timesheets have been designed specifically to enable you to collect feedback based on your individual performance.

4. Reflections and Discussions

You must record a minimum of five written reflections and discussions relating to the Code, your CPD and practice related feedback.

You must have a professional development discussion with another NMC registered nurse and cover your reflections relating to the above.

You MUST use either the NMC Reflective accounts form template (available on our website).

The NMC registered nurse is required to record their NMC Pin, e-mail, professional address, and postcode, as well as the date you had the discussion.

While this discussion can form part of your wider confirmation discussion, it is not the same as obtaining confirmation. If you work with ICARE24 Group on a full time or regular basis, you will be given access to ICARE24 Group Reflective Discussion Partner.

To book your Reflection Discussion Appointment email us at; revalidation@Icare24.co.uk

5. Health and Character Declaration

You must provide a Health and Character Declaration and declare if you have been convicted of any criminal offence or issued with a formal caution. When making these declarations, please refer to the following NMC links:

www.nmc.org.uk/education/becoming-a-nurse-or-midwife/when-studying-to-be-a-nurse-or-midwife/

www.nmc.org.uk/registration/staying-on-the-register/informing-us-of-cautions-and-convictions/

6. Professional Indemnity Arrangement

You must declare that you have, or will have when practising, appropriate cover under an indemnity arrangement. By law, you must have in place an appropriate indemnity arrangement in order to practise and provide care. While the arrangement does not need to be individually held by you, it is your responsibility to ensure that appropriate cover is in force. Please refer to the following NMC link when making this declaration:

www.nmc.org.uk/globalassets/siteDocuments/Registration/PII/PII-final-guidance.pdf

Please note: If you do not have the appropriate indemnity cover, you will be removed from the NMC register and will be unable to practice as a nurse.

7. Confirmation from a third party – Vitality24

Your third party confirmer will be someone who is considered to be your line manager and doesn’t need to be NMC registered. However, to provide the best support possible to our Nurses third party confirmers at Vitality24 will be NMC registered. Your confirmer will verify the declarations within your application in a face-to-face meeting and you will have to demonstrate that you have met all of the revalidation requirements before they can sign and date the confirmation form.

The NMC recommend that you obtain your confirmation during the final 12 months of the three-year registration period to ensure that it is recent. If your confirmation is produced earlier, you may be asked to explain why. It’s likely that your confirmer will also conduct your annual appraisals, that way you can keep your confirmer up-todate with all of your revalidation preparation. If you work with Vitality24 on a full time or regular basis, you will be given access to a Vitality2 Confirmer for your third party confirmation.

To book your Confirmation Appointment email us at; enquiries@vitality24.co.uk

8. How to Apply for Revalidation

The NMC will notify you at least 60 days before your application for revalidation is due. You will then have 60 days to log onto NMC Online and complete the revalidation application form. Please ensure that at this point, you have all of your revalidation evidence collated and ready to submit.

9. What Happens if I Don’t Complete my Revalidation?

If you don’t submit your revalidation application in time your registration will lapse which means that it will be illegal for you to practice as a nurse.

To return onto the register you will have to apply for readmission which could take up to six weeks. If you submit your revalidation application in time but it is refused because you have failed to meet your revalidation requirements, you can appeal this decision within 28 days of the date on your decision letter.

10. Are There any Arrangements for Exceptional Circumstances if I Cannot Meet Revalidation Requirements?

The NMC have special arrangements in place for nurses and midwives who cannot meet the revalidation requirements as a result of exceptional circumstances. By exceptional circumstances they mean that you have 5 not been in practice for sufficient time between October 2015 when the revalidation guidance was published and your revalidation application date(for example, if you have been on maternity leave or sick leave) to meet the additional requirements, or you cannot meet one or more of the requirements at any time because a protected characteristic under the Equality Act may apply.

If you are able to establish that exceptional circumstances apply in your case, you will still need to meet the Prep requirements for renewal. Please see NMC guidance sheet on exceptional circumstances for further information at: www.nmc.org.uk/standards/revalidation/revalidation-guidance-and-resources

11. Can I Request an Extension to Submit my Revalidation Application?

The NMC have said they will not usually consider any requests for extensions to submit a revalidation application. You should have met the requirements during the three years prior to the renewal of your registration. However, if you believe that you have a good reason why you cannot submit your revalidation application by the specified date, you must contact the NMC as far in advance of your revalidation application date as possible to discuss your situation.

The NMC state in their guidance that they are only able to grant an extension prior to the date your registration is due to lapse. Any extensions will only be granted for a period of up to six weeks. In granting an extension, the NMC will take into account:

  • Whether you have contacted the NMC in advance of the date your revalidation application is due;
  • The reason why you cannot submit your revalidation application by the specified date;
  • Whether you are capable of completing the outstanding revalidation requirements and submitting your application within the additional period of time;
  • Whether there are any concerns about your fitness to practise, and whether the annual fee has been or will be paid by the required date.
  • Any extension the NMC agree in relation to your revalidation application would not include an extension to the date on which your annual fee is due to be paid.

There is a step-by-step guide to registering online: www.nmc.org.uk/Registration/NMC-Online/

12. Paying your Renewal Fee

As part of your revalidation application, you will need to pay your renewal fee. Here is a guidance document on how to pay your renewal fee:
www.nmc.org.uk/registration/staying-on-the-register/paying-your-fee/

13. Important Changes to Lapsed NMC Registration

New Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) rules come into force last year – from November 2015 anyone who allows their registration to lapse will be taken off the register immediately.

14. Know your registration date

Please ensure that you know your re-register date and are planning ahead. It is illegal for you to continue working if you are not on the NMC register and it could result in getting suspended from work. Also note that readmission to the register can take a minimum of between two to six weeks, meaning that you will not be paid for this period.

15. NMC Online Account

The easiest way to maintain registration is through an NMC Online account. On NMC Online, you can:

  • view registration status
  • find out your renewal date
  • update your contact and address details
  • view and print a statement of entry
  • submit your notification of practice (NoP) online
  • pay your annual retention or renewal fees
  • set up a direct debit for your annual fee payment
  • provide equality and diversity information, and
  • provide details about where you work

If you do have an NMC account, log-in today to check your registration status and renewal date.

Revalidation FAQ's

Why is revalidation being introduced?

Revalidation is being introduced by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) in April 2016 to build further confidence and improve protection with the public, employers, and fellow professionals by ensuring that nurses and midwives are up-to-date with their professional practice.

What do I have to do to revalidate?

  • 450 practice hours – Over the three years prior to the renewal of your registration.
  • 35 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) – Must be relevant to your practice as a nurse and over the three years prior to the renewal of your registration. 20 hours must be through participatory learning.
  • Five pieces of practice-related feedback (at least) – Feedback can be informal / formal, written or verbal and from a number of sources including patients, service users, students and colleagues.
  • Five written reflections and one discussion – On the Code, your CPD and practice related feedback. You must discuss these reflections with another NMC-registered nurse.
  • Health and character declaration – You must declare if you have been convicted of any criminal offence or issued with a formal caution.
  • Professional Indemnity Arrangement.
  • Confirmation from a third party – An appropriate third party confirmer is your line manager or an NMC registrant which you work with.

You will also be contacted by the NMC 60 days before your revalidation application is due. Your revalidation date will be the first day of the month in which your registration expires and as part of that you will need to submit the online application before that date. We recommend at least 2 weeks prior in case you come across any unforeseen delays.

What can I count as continuing professional development (CPD)?

It needs to be relevant to your practice. Mandatory training can be counted but the NMC are ideally looking for something that fits close to what you specialize in. You can often get CPD points / hours online, at events, conferences and workshops so take a look at what’s local to you – some of which could be free! Remember, 20 out of the 35 hours need to be participatory which means that you need to be in a group setting. To support you through revalidation ICARE24 is running a series of Revalidation Training Workshops at its Victoria Office on; 3rd May, 9th June and 1st September 1st 2016, which will count towards your CPD! To book your place please e mail revalidation@icare24.co.uk

Where can I get feedback from?

You can collect feedback verbally, written, in a formal or informal format. It could also relate to you as an individual or through the team you’re in. To support you in obtaining feedback, ICARE24 Group Plc Time-sheets have been specifically designed for you to collect individual feedback. If you look to collect feedback from a patient, do remember to get their consent first and do not provide personal details which could identify the patient. Ref: RFS: BR-HH 2016 Revalidation FAQs

How do I write a reflective account?

You need to follow the NMC guidelines and complete each section they propose. You can either download the NMC form, the RCNi Portfolio account or use the template within the ICARE24 Group Revalidation Template Pack.

The questions which you have to answer include:

  • Title
  • Date
  • What was the nature of the CPD activity/ practice-related feedback?
  • What did you learn from the CPD activity and/or feedback?
  • How did you change or improve your work as a result?
  • How is this relevant to the Code?

Read the ICARE24 Group Guide to Writing a Reflective Account for more information.

What can I write a reflective account on?

Training (CPD), an event or experience in practice and feedback that you have collected about yourself or the team you are part of (verbal, written, formal or informal).

What is a reflective discussion?

Throughout the three years leading up to your revalidation date, you should be completing reflective pieces (at least five) to evidence as part of the process. The reflective discussion follows on from your written reflections and requires you to have a face-to-face conversation with another Nursing and Midwifery (NMC) registrant to discuss your written reflective accounts in detail. You do not need to work with the person on a daily basis and they do not need to be within the same specialism as you, but you will need to complete the reflective discussion form and obtain a signature from the other NMC registration to evidence that you do not practice in professional isolation. If you work with ICARE24 Group on a full time or regular basis, you will be given access to ICARE24 Group Reflective Discussion Partner. To book your Reflection Discussion Appointment email us at; revalidation@Icare24.co.uk.

Do I need to keep a portfolio?

It is strongly recommended you do so. You portfolio can be paper based or online (eportfolio) either way it need to hold you evidence of each requirement ready to be discussed in your confirmation meeting. It is also needed as future reference should you be asked to provide your 9 portfolio as part of the NMC’s random sample of verification. Ref: RFS: BR-HH 2016 Revalidation FAQs

Will I have to send off my entire portfolio?

No. You will only complete the online revalidation application form confirming that you have met all of the requirements. You need to keep you portfolio as evidence for the three years and we recommend you keep a copy of it for future reference. The NMC will be selecting a random sample of nurses to send through their portfolio to verify their declarations as part of their revalidation application. If you are selected it does not necessarily mean there are any concerns about your application, and you can continue to practise while the NMC reviews the information you provide.

What is the purpose of a confirmation meeting?

The confirmation meeting is the final step before you submit your revalidation application. Its purpose is to review all evidence collected over the last three years as part of the renewal process. Take a look at The ICARE24 Group Revalidation Guidance Sheet to learn more about Confirmation.

Who can act as my confirmer?

Whilst it’s recommended that the confirmer is an NMC registrant, it’s not a must. They should however, be considered to be your line manager and If that’s not possible, you can seek confirmation from another UK registered healthcare professional that you work with e.g. doctor, dentist or pharmacist. If you work with ICARE24 Group on a full time or regular basis, you will be given access to aICARE24 Group Confirmer for your third party confirmation. To book your Confirmation Appointment email us at; revalidation@Icare24.co.uk.

Is revalidation a test?

No. Revalidation will not be an assessment on fitness to practice, but it will be used to promote good practice across the whole population of nurses and midwives. The NMC have also confirmed that this is not intended to address bad practice amongst a select few nurses and midwives.

How do I find out my revalidation date?

Sign up or log-in to the NMC Online to find out your revalidation and renewal date. Be sure to keep all of your contact information up to date so that they can send important reminders. You will receive notification from the NMC at least 60 days prior to your application renewal.

What is my revalidation date?

It’s the first day of the month in which your registration expiries. So if you know your registration expires on the 12 June 2016, your revalidation date will be the 1 June 2016.

How do I submit my revalidation application?

You will need to submit your application to revalidate through NMC Online. If you haven’t registered with NMC Online you can do so here: https://www.nmc.org.uk/Registration/NMC-Online/

What happens if I don’t complete my revalidation?

Ref: RFS: BR-HH 2016 Revalidation FAQs If you don’t submit your revalidation application in time your registration will lapse which means that it will be illegal for you to practice as a nurse. To return onto the register you will have to apply for readmission which could take up to six weeks. If you submit your revalidation application in time but it is refused because you have failed to meet your revalidation requirements, you can appeal this decision within 28 days of the date on your decision letter.

Are there any arrangements for exceptional circumstances if I cannot meet revalidation requirements?

The NMC have special arrangements in place for nurses and midwives who cannot meet the revalidation requirements as a result of exceptional circumstances. By exceptional circumstances they mean that you have not been in practice for sufficient time between October 2015 when the revalidation guidance was published and your revalidation application date(for example, if you have been on maternity leave or sick leave) to meet the additional requirements, or you cannot meet one or more of the requirements at any time because a protected characteristic under the Equality Act may apply.

If you are able to establish that exceptional circumstances apply in your case, you will still need to meet the Prep requirements for renewal. Please see NMC guidance sheet on exceptional circumstances for further information at: www.nmc.org.uk/standards/revalidation/revalidationguidance-and-resources.

Can I Request an extension to submit my revalidation application?

The NMC have said they will not usually consider any requests for extensions to submit a revalidation application.

Any extension the NMC agree in relation to your revalidation application would not include an extension to the date on which your annual fee is due to be paid.

What happens after I have sent off my revalidation application?

Ref: RFS: BR-HH 2016 Revalidation FAQs After you have submitted the application and have paid your renewal fee’s you will have the option of printing off confirmation of your submitted application. Once your application has been successfully processed and your payment has been received, the NMC will send you an email confirming that your registration has been renewed. We recommended that you check the register on the NMC online to double check that it’s completed and approved.

What happens if I go onto maternity leave?

You will still be required to revalidate and evidence the requirements. If you have any concerns, contact the NMC and raise the question with them to get clarification. Do you have a question that you would like an answer to? E-mail us at revalidation@icare24.co.uk with your questions and we will do our best to help find the answer.

Reflective Discussion Guidance

1. What is a Reflective Discussion?

One of the requirements of revalidation is that all nurses and midwives must have a reflective discussion with another NMC-registered nurse or midwife. This discussion is designed to encourage a culture of sharing, reflection, and improvement amongst nurses and midwives by:

• Requiring nurses and midwives to discuss their professional development and improvement; and

• Ensuring that nurses and midwives do not work in professional isolation.

This discussion should be based on your five written reflective accounts, which are another requirement of revalidation. For more details of the revalidation requirements and how to meet them, please see ICARE24 Group Revalidation Guidance Sheet. The NMC also provides examples of written reflective accounts on their website:
https://www.nmc.org.uk/standards/revalidation/revalidation-guidance-and-resources/

In this reflective discussion guidance sheet we provide both general and ICARE24 Group specific information for nurses and midwives who are revalidating.

2. The Purpose of Reflective Discussion

The reflective discussion will be most valuable to all nurses and midwives if you consider how you can benefit from it. Reflection enables you to make sense of a situation and understand how it has affected you. The reflective discussion should be a positive experience that offers both participants the opportunity to help each other to think about their practice and learn from others.

For nurses or midwives who are revalidating, it gives you the opportunity to respond constructively to feedback, experiences, and learning. It also allows you to identify areas for learning and development, and to consider how you can put changes or improvements into action in your everyday practice as a result.

3. Before the Discussion

Nurses and midwives who are revalidating Ref: RFS: BR-HH 2016 Reflective Discussion Guidance The reflective discussion centres on your five written reflective accounts. These accounts should be based on instances of your CPD and/or feedback you have received about your practice and/or an event or experience in your practice, and how these relate to the Code. Before you have your reflective discussion, you need to have written your five reflective accounts on the NMC form we have provided. You may want to share your reflective accounts with your discussion partner in advance. You also need to choose who to have your reflective discussion with. Some factors to consider when choosing your discussion partner include:

  • How well you know them: you might prefer to have the discussion with a colleague you work with regularly, or with someone you are less familiar with;
  • Whether they undertake the same type of practice as you: you might find it more helpful to discuss your reflective accounts with someone who has had similar experiences to you, or someone with different experiences; and
  • Whether they are senior or junior to you, or at the same level: would you find it valuable to have insight from someone who has been working at a different level to you?

It is up to you to choose who the most appropriate person is, and you can have discussions with more than one nurse or midwife if you want to. However, please note that although you only need to record the details of one discussion, this discussion must cover your five written reflective accounts. Part of the revalidation process involves demonstrating to a confirmer that you have met the revalidation requirements. If your confirmer is a nurse or midwife and you choose to have your reflective discussion with them, your reflective discussion can form part of the confirmation discussion. If your confirmer is not a nurse or midwife, or you choose to have your reflective discussion with a different nurse or midwife, you will need to have your reflective discussion before your confirmation discussion. If your line manager is a nurse or midwife, you might like to have both your reflective discussion and your confirmation discussion as part of an annual appraisal, if you have one, but this is not necessary. If you work with Icare24 24on a full time or regular basis, you will be given access to a Icare24 24Reflective Discussion Partner and Confirmer. To make your Reflective Discussion or Confirmation Appointment please contact revalidation@Icare24.co.uk. Ref: RFS: BRHH 2016 Reflective Discussion Guidance Using A Icare24 24Reflective Discussion Partner Icare24 Reflective Discussion Partners will ask all Nurses and Midwives wishing to undertake reflective discussion to share their five written reflective accounts with them beforehand. These will be used as a starting point for the reflective discussion, and you might like to think about what lessons can be learned from these accounts beforehand.

To help structure your discussion you will be asked some questions. These could include:

  • What did you learn?
  • What effect did this have on you?
  • How might you change your practice as a result?

4. During the Discussion

The discussion itself is based on the five written reflective accounts. These accounts link real-life experiences to the four key themes of the Code (prioritise people, practise effectively, preserve safety, promote professionalism and trust). This is an opportunity for to refamiliarise yourselves with the Code and gain a greater understanding of how it applies to your everyday nursing and/or midwifery practice. It may be helpful for you to bring a copy of the Code with you to the discussion. You can use the reflective discussion in lots of different ways, for example:

  • To share ideas, information and experiences;
  • To debrief after an incident;
  • To get another person’s perspective on a situation; and
  • To think about professional development objectives.

Your discussion partner can offer a different perspective on an event or piece of feedback, help you to reach a conclusion, or develop an action plan for the future. During your discussion you should not discuss patients, service users or colleagues in a way that could identify them unless they expressly agree. Unless the reflective discussion is part of the confirmation discussion, you do not need to consider evidence relating to other revalidation requirements. Ref: RFS: BR-HH 2016 Reflective Discussion Guidance

5. After the discussion – The Reflective Discussion Form

Nurses and midwives who are revalidating You must record details of your reflective discussion on the NMC form. You need to record your name and NMC Pin. You should keep the completed and signed form. You will need to show it to your confirmer as evidence that you have had a reflective discussion (unless your confirmer was your reflective discussion partner).

Please remember: The written reflective accounts, and the discussion summary section of the reflective discussion form, must not include any information that might identify an individual, whether that individual is alive or deceased. This means that all information must be recorded in a way that no patient, colleague or other individual can be identified from the information.

The reflective discussion form should be completed, stored and shared in manual paper form only, as opposed to electronically. This is important because creating, storing or sharing these data electronically may trigger an obligation to register with the Information Commissioner because they contain identifying information about another NMC-registered nurse or midwife.

6. After the Discussion – The Online Application

Nurses and midwives who are revalidating As part of your online application you will need to declare that you have had a reflective discussion with another NMC-registered nurse or midwife, and you will need to enter the name, NMC Pin and email of the nurse or midwife with whom you had the discussion, as well as the date you had the reflective discussion. You will also need to agree that the NMC can contact your reflective discussion partner if necessary to verify the information that you provided in your application.
