How nurses are preparing for the revalidation process

Five nurses from across the UK discuss their plans for renewing their registration, continuing professional development and building their portfolios

As the profession’s new system of revalidation goes live, this article brings together the experiences of emergency nurses from revalidation pilot sites in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. A total of 19 sites across the UK, including hospital trusts, tested the process between 2014 and 2015. This gave these trusts the opportunity to prepare their staff and help them to get revalidation ready ahead of the official roll-out. This article aims to help nurses working in emergency departments better understand the process and offers tips for dealing with process issues which are pertinent to them.
