Some roles will include non-clinical practice, however you must be in a role based on your professional capacity, using your nursing/midwifery knowledge, skills & experience.It is recommended that you keep a record of the hours worked in your portfolio, as you may be asked to provide evidence of this to the NMC.This is the equivalent of 12 weeks working 37.5 hours/week.The NMC currently have a Practice Hours Record Log as part of the pilot.If you are selected to provide further information to verify the declaration you made in your application, you will be asked to provide a range of information about your practice hours, including:• dates of practice• the number of hours you undertook• name, address and postcode of the organisations• scope of practice• work setting• a description of the work you undertook; and• evidence of those practice hours, such as timesheets, job specifications and role profiles.You will be asked to provide this information starting from your most recent practice, and continuing until you meet the practice hours requirement.More information is coming from NMC on practice hours.
12 ............Continuing Professional Development Revalidation and youContinuing Professional DevelopmentHow to meet the requirementsYou will be asked to declare that you have undertaken a minimum of 40 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) relevant to your scope of practice as a registered nurse or midwife.At least 20 of these hours must be ‘participatory’ this means you have interacted with others to learn, either physically or virtually.You must collect evidence and keep records that you have met these requirements, you will need to show this to your confirmer.The NMC may also ask to see this.Any learning activity you participate in should be relevant to your scope of practice as a nurse or a midwife. Therefore, you should not include mandatory training that is not directly related to your practice (for example, fire training or health and safety training) as part of your 40 hours of CPD. However, if you undertake any mandatory training that is necessary to your scope of practice and professional development (for example, mandatory training on equality legislation if you are in a policy role), you could include these.Participatory learning includes any learning activity in which you personally interacted with other people. It is an activity undertaken with one or more professionals or in a larger group setting. The group does not always need to be in a common physical environment, such as a study tour or conference. It could be a group in a virtual environment (such as an online discussion group). 'The professionals that you engage with through participatory learning do not have to be healthcare professionals.at in your portfolio.
13 ............Continuing Professional Development Revalidation and youContinuing Professional DevelopmentYou must keep a record of:Dates on which the CPD was undertakenCPD method e.g. Online learning, study dayDescription of the learning activity, how it linked to your scope of practice, what you learnt and how you have applied this learning to your practiceLinks between the CPD activity and the most relevant part of the CodeNumber of CPD hours (including the number of participatory hours)This can be kept as part of a portfolio. Provisional templates are available on the NMC website.
15 ............Practice Related Feedback Revalidation and youPractice Related FeedbackHow to meet the requirementsYou must obtain at least 5 pieces of practice-related feedback over the three years prior to the renewal of your registration.Try to obtain feedback from a variety of sources. For example you might receive feedback from patients, carers, students, service users or colleagues.You can also obtain feedback through reviewing complaints, team performance reports and serious event reviews.You may also have received feedback through your annual appraisal.Feedback can be formal or informal. Written or verbal.You do not need to include the actual instances of feedback in your portfolio. However, we recommend that you keep a note of the content of the feedback and how you used it to improve your practice. This will be helpful for you to use when you are preparing your reflective accounts.You may not always need to seek feedback. It’s likely that you will already receive a range of feedback.Feedback from colleagues does not need to be limited to colleagues who are nurses or midwives. They could be other healthcare professionals you work with. They might also include colleagues in management, on reception, or assistant positions. They may be fellow teachers, academics, researchers or policy colleagues.If directly asking colleagues or patients for feedback, we recommend that you inform them how you intend to use their feedback and whether it will remain confidential.
17 ............Reflection and Discussion Revalidation and youReflection and DiscussionHow to meet the requirementsYou must record a minimum of 5 written reflections on the Code, your CPD and practice-related feedback over the three years prior to the renewal of your registration.Each reflection can be about CPD or feedback, or a combination of both. For example, you could create a reflective account on a particular topic which may have arisen through some feedback your team received, such as consent and confidentiality and identify how that relates to the Code.The nmc have a template to record this information but this in a draft format, you can use any method of recording this however it must meet the minimum requirements explaining what you learnt from the CPD activities and/or feedback. Including how you have changed or improved your practice as a result, and how this is relevant to the Code.
18 ............Reflection and Discussion Revalidation and youReflection and DiscussionHow to meet the requirementsYou must have a professional development discussion with another NMC registrant, covering your reflections on the Code, your CPD and practice-related feedback prior to confirmation.You must ensure that the NMC registrant with whom you had your professional development discussion signs a form recording their name, NMC Pin, , professional address and postcode, as well as the date you had the discussion.In most instances this will take place at the same time as confirmation.You must discuss your reflective accounts with an NMC registrant as part of a professional development discussion. They could be someone you frequently work with or someone from a professional network or learning group. You do not need to work with them on a daily basis and you do not need to undertake the same type of practice. It is for you to decide who is the most appropriate person to have this conversation with, including whether they are more senior or junior to youYou must ensure that the NMC registrant with whom you had your professional development discussion signs a form recording their name, NMC Pin, , professional address and postcode, as well as the date you had the discussion.
20 ............Confirmation from a Third Party Revalidation and youConfirmation from a Third PartyHow to meet the requirementsThe NMC will ask you to provide the name, NMC Pin or other professional identification number (where relevant), , professional address and postcode of the ‘appropriate third party confirmer’.The ‘appropriate third party confirmer’ is your line manager. We strongly recommend that you obtain confirmation from your line manager wherever possible. Your line manager does not have to be an NMC registrant to ‘confirm’ you.Wherever possible we recommend that the third party you obtain confirmation from is an NMC registrant. It is helpful if they have worked with you or have a similar scope of practice, but this is not essential.If that is not possible, you can seek confirmation from another healthcare professional that you work with and who is regulated in the UK. For example, you could ask a doctor, dentist or a pharmacist. You will need to record their professional Pin or registration number and the name of their professional regulator.

If you are a member of a union you should also have personal indemnity – check with provider.Your declaration will be made as part of your revalidation application. You will be asked to inform the NMC whether your indemnity arrangement is through your employer, a membership with a professional body, or through a private insurance arrangement. Alternatively, you will be able to inform us that you are not practising at this time but that you intend to have appropriate cover in place before you practise.
