The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) have finalised the revalidation process for nurses and midwives in order to remain on the register. As an integral part of our organization, we would like to clarify and remind you of your obligation as a registered healthcare professional to ensure that your registration remains active.
As a member of Ortexchange healthcare your active registration is of the utmost importance to us and we would, therefore, like to raise the awareness of this process and offer our support.
HOW DOES REVALIDATION WORK?
Revalidation is the process that allows you to maintain your registration with the NMC. It is a continuous process to demonstrate your ability to continue to practice safely.
Every three years all nurses and midwives will be asked to apply for revalidation using the NMC online system as a means of keeping their registration active.
Completing the revalidation process is your responsibility as the registered nurse, however, Ortexchange healthcare will endeavour to help where it possibly can.
