|The NMC committed to introducing a model of revalidation for all nurses and midwives from April 2016. The chosen option required no legislative change and builds on existing systems. Revalidation replaces PREP requirements and seeks to promote professionalism among nurses and midwives. It will require registrants to demonstrate how they meet the standards of the revised NMC Code “Professional Standards of practice and behaviour for nurse and midwives” (NMC 2015) effective 31st March 2015, NMC Code. The purpose of Revalidation is to improve public protection by making sure that nurses and midwives continue to remain fit to practice throughout their career.|
