Introduction of revalidation for nurses and midwives

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has published information on the success of the first round of revalidation, which begun in April.

The introduction of revalidation for nurses and midwives has been a major success, with the majority of those due to renew their registration revalidating successfully.

Latest figures show 90.48% (14,362) of the 15,873 due to revalidate in April 2016 have successfully renewed their registration through revalidation and only 1,401 have left the register. This is in line with the number of registrants we would normally expect to leave the register in any given April.
