Regional Events have been organised by NHS Education Scotland to enhance organisational readiness for the implementation of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Revalidation. NMC Revalidation will be introduced from April 2016, with all nurses and midwives required to renew their professional registration through the revalidation process every three years. The NMC Code and how it is used to inform the day to day practice is central to the revalidation of individual nurses and midwives.

NHS Education for Scotland has been working closely with the Scottish Government and NHS Boards in supporting the preparation of nurses and midwives and their line managers for these regulatory changes.

These regional events will have an educational focus and are intended to complement information available on the NMC website and the Scottish Revalidation Community of Practice

The Care Inspectorate is raising awareness of this for service providers who employ nurses.
