The revalidation process has seen a large spike in the amount of concerns amongst practicing nurses and midwives that their PINs could be at risk.
Brought in as an attempt to rectify the failures of institutions such as Stepping Hill by improving standards of care amongst all practicing nurses and midwives, it also means that a more thorough approach to renewing your membership/PIN has been introduced.
The NMC backed process will require nurses and midwives to submit online evidence that they are:
During the revalidation process these seven key requirements must be demonstrated and submitted to the NMC's online portal.
With this new structure in place, all nurses and midwives must keep on top of their registration details including when their renewal date is due. This is because of a more robust enforcement of lapsed and incomplete registrations by the NMC.
Currently nurses and midwives who allow their registration to lapse are immediately stricken from the register with their PIN removed in the process. They are then made to undertake a four to six week period of readmission during which they cannot work. Those who do continue to practice without a PIN could face criminal charges and long term suspensions from the NMC. So an inability to complete revalidation fully and submit it on time will result in your PIN being removed from the NMC registration resulting in a loss of income and money after paying the re-entry fee.
Revalidation may seem overly complicated at first but do not worry as in practice the process is very simple and we are happy to assist you with any problems you encounter.
