Revalidation Continues To Have Positive Impact On Midwives And Nurses

Findings from an independent evaluation suggest that revalidation is continuing to have a positive impact on the attitudes and behaviours of midwives and nurses.

The evidence suggests that revalidation is encouraging midwives and nurses to analyse the care they give by reflecting on their practice and seeking feedback from colleagues, patients and service users.

In particular, reflective practice is viewed as a likely driving force behind changing attitudes and behaviours.

The latest figures from the NMC's second revalidation annual report show that 204,218 midwives and nurses revalidated in the past year, with 406,917 revalidating since the process began in 2016.

Many of those who have been through revalidation said they feel positive towards the process and the NMC says there is evidence of a growing understanding of the Code and continued positive attitudes towards its role in midwives’ and nurses’ practice.

Around two thirds of the UK's midwives and nurses have now revalidated with the NMC. Figures also show that 56% of those revalidating work in a hospital setting, 18% work in the community and 8% work in care homes. Other settings include GP practices, prisons and schools.

NMC director of registration and revalidation Emma Broadbent said: "Midwives and nurses deliver world-class care to millions of people across the UK each year. Whether in hospitals, care homes or the community, revalidation is helping them to improve the care that they deliver. They’re reflecting more on their practice, analysing what they can improve and using what they learn to develop as professionals.

"More than 400,000 midwives and nurses have now revalidated but we know that many thousands more will do so in the coming months and we’ll take on board the recommendations of this evaluation as we continue to support all those going through the process."
