The Code • The NMC’s updated code of professional standards became effective on 31st March 2015 • The Code is centred around four themes, with public protection at the core, and builds on the existing foundation of good nursing and midwifery practice • The Code should be used as a ‘living’ guide at the heart of everyday nursing and midwifery practice
Four themes brought together in one CodeTogether they signify good nursing and midwifery practice.
What is Revalidation? • Revalidation builds on the previous Prep requirements • Every three years, at the point of their renewal of registration, nurses and midwives need to show that, as a professional, they are living by the Code’s standards of practice and behaviour • They need to meet a range of requirements, designed to show that they are keeping up to date and practising safely and effectively • Revalidation is about promoting good practice across the whole population of nurses and midwives. • Participation is on an on-going basis rather than a point in time assessment
What it is NOT • It is NOT about assessing competence x • It is NOT an assessment of a nurse or midwifes fitness to practicex • It is NOT a way to raise fitness to practice concerns x
Revalidation aims to: • Raise awareness of the Code and professional standards expected of nurses and midwives; • Allow nurses and midwives to reflect on the role of the Code in their practice and demonstrate that they are ‘living’ these standards • Encourage nurses and midwives to stay up to date in their professional practice; • Encourage a culture of sharing, reflection and improvement; • Encourage nurses and midwives to engage in professional networks and discussions about their practice; and Strengthen public confidence in the nursing and midwifery profession
Overall • Revalidation should lead to improved practice and therefore public protection benefits
