We aim to meet the needs for the growing demand of services required in the health industry and to create jobs in our local and surrounding community by catering for both temporary, contracts and permanent personnel.

We understand that the revalidation process can be a stressful moment requiring accuracy, evidence of competence and appraisal. This is why we want to support you by providing all the information you need to guide you through your revalidation journey.

Revalidation is the method by which you will renew your registration, and is built on Post registration education and practice (Prep). The purpose of revalidation is to improve public protection by making sure that you remain fit to practice throughout your career. Source: Royal College of Nursing.

Since April 2016, every three years all nurses and midwives (registrants) in the UK 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 D&S Training and Recruitment Ltd can assist you where applicable.

If you work as an agency or bank nurse or midwife you still need to revalidate.

The deadline for submitting your revalidation application is the first day of the month in which your registration expires.


The NMC revalidation requirements to be completed over a repeating 3 year period include:

  • 450 practice hours, or 900 if revalidating as both a nurse and midwife

  • 35 hours CPD including 20 hours participatory learning (learning with others)

  • Five pieces of practice related feedback

  • Five written reflective accounts (on the template provided by the NMC)

  • Reflective discussion (using the NMC template provided)

  • Health and character declaration to be provided via NMC Online

  • Professional indemnity arrangement via NMC Online

  • Confirmation (using the NMC template provided).
