Read our guide designed to make revalidation simple and easy to understand
Nurse revalidation needs to cover:
- Work record
- CPD Log
- Health declaration
- Character declaration
- Indemnity declaration
The Nurse revalidation cycle is 3 years long, and will cover the previous three years.
NMC requirements for revalidation:
- You must practise a minimum number of hours over the three years
preceding the date of your application for renewal of your registration
- You must undertake 35 hours of continuing professional development (CPD)
relevant to your scope of practice as a nurse or midwife, over the three years
prior to the renewal of your registration.
Work hours in previous three years prior to revalidation:
These are a minimum of 450 hours in a nursing role or midwifery role. If you are registered as both a nurse and midwife then a minimum of 900 hours (450 of each) are required.
Regular and participatory hours:
The minimum requirement for CPD hours is 35. There should be at least 15 hours of both regular time and 20 hours of participatory time spent.
