Since 1 April 2016, UK nurses and midwives have been required to undertake revalidation to maintain their registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This article reports the results of a service evaluation to identify the revalidation preparation experiences of nurses and midwives at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH). Findings suggest that the revalidation preparation process at UCLH supports staff to seek opportunities continually for practice feedback, reflect on their everyday experiences and link their learning to ongoing professional development.
