Nurse Revalidation - A Quick Guide

The Guild understands that the prospect of Revalidation can be daunting for many of our nurses and so we have been working hard to develop appropriate means of support that fit around our nurse’s requirements and lifestyles.

Here are a few short tips that we hope will help get you started:

Who is meant to support me?

Did you know that your permanent employer can support you with your appraisal and completion of Revalidation? The benefits of completing your Revalidation portfolio with your permanent employer can give you access to appraisals and potential career development opportunities, so take advantage.

What is The Guild doing to support me?

Not sure when you’re due to Revalidate?

You can check your revalidation date by logging into your NMC online account. If you have not yet registered for an online account please register here.

Once you have logged in, in the right hand corner you will see your:

  • NMC PIN number
  • Fee expiry date
  • Renewal date - your renewal date is your revalidation date

Remember: It is your responsibility to know when you are due to revalidate and when your portfolio should be completed by, in preparation for your Revalidation meeting. The Guild is not responsible for providing you with this information and nor is any other employer or nursing agency so please make sure you know your Revalidation date. If you drop off the register it can take up to 3 months for you to be re-registered and be able to work again.

If you’re a full time Guild nurse and you would like support in completing your portfolio, please call our team on 0345 120 5253
