Nurse Revalidation: First nurses report positive revalidation experience
Monday, March 14th, 2016 | Revalidation
The first 16,000 nurses to go through revalidation are reporting their experience, so far, has been straightforward, achievable and powerful.
With the first batch of nurses required to apply for revalidation online within the next couple of weeks, reports are coming in from them describing the whole process as clear and easy.
The NMC accredits this to their online guides, instructing people step-by-step through the process: “It’s great to see how simple our nurses and midwives are finding the revalidation process. We hope this feedback will reassure those who may be anxious that there is nothing to worry about and that the revalidation process is simple, straightforward and valuable”, explains NMC Chief Executive, Jackie Smith.
Nurses aren’t just finding the process easier than expected though, many are also finding it a beneficial for their careers – in particular the reflective discussion requirement. One of these nurses is GP Practice Nurse, Marcela who feels her reflective discussion was “amazing” and she “got a lot out of it”.
Despite the many positive comments to be said about the new process, one of the most common tips is to start early – indicating even if easy, revalidation may well be time consuming.
To try and help overcome this, Kare Plus has created revalidation support packs for all our nurses; including template documents to make recording and displaying revalidation evidence quick and easy – helping nurses make the most of their highly sought after time.
