Revalidation Support

Revalidation is the process that all nurses and midwives in the UK and nursing associates in England need to follow to maintain their registration with the NMC.

As a registered Harley Medical nurse, you'll have access to a complete suite of Revalidation tools to help you maintain your CPD and track and complete your revalidation. 

Started in April 2016, revalidation is straightforward and will help you as a nurse, midwife or nursing associate demonstrate that you practise safely and effectively. It will encourage you to reflect on the role of the Code in your practice and demonstrate that you are 'living' the standards set out within it.

You will have to revalidate every three years to renew your registration.

You will need to submit your application for revalidation online, so it’s very important that you have an NMC Online account. If you haven’t already, you can set up your NMC Online account here.

Revalidation Requirements

You need to meet a range of revalidation requirements to show that you are keeping your skills and knowledge up to date and maintaining safe and effective practice.

  • 450 practice hours, or 900 hours if renewing two registrations (for example, as both a nurse and midwife)

  • 35 hours of CPD including 20 hours of participatory learning

  • Five pieces of practice-related feedback

  • Five written reflective accounts

  • Reflective discussion

  • Health and character declaration

  • Professional indemnity arrangement

  • Confirmation

Manage your CPD and revalidation from your app, submit information, collect signatures and keep fully up to date with your revalidation process.


You can also view and apply for shifts, submit your timesheets and submit time-off and other requests.
