nurses - revalidation NMC

Recommended Posts

Hi, I need to revalidate this year, doing it for first time....anyone able to let me use them as NMC registered person to put as my reflective part? I can do the same in return. I don't know any UK nurses personally to do this for me having nursed in Aus now longer than I did in the UK. Not great options for those of us working out with the UK. Thanks

I spoke to NMC and they said it has to be an nmc registered nurse, no getting around it and if I was a member of RCN I could join their forums to meet other nurses to help me out but I'm not a member! They also said they prefer I see this nurse face to face and if I can't it has to be an absolute last resort to not meet with them and I need to explain why...but surely lots of us doing it this way from afar? And would joining RCN be that straight forward anyway, when I used to be a member I don't recall these forums and I don't have a lot of time now. I have asked everyone in/near my area I can think of across three hospitals and community services but the only uk nurses (3 of them) are no longer uk registered. I'm in a regional area too which doesn't help. I just hate thought of not having it in case I need to go back there to work ? Anyone any ideas, help or experience on what they did?? I don't know what else to do ?? or is it easier to let it lapse then reapply??

Hi Lorna, 

where abouts in Aus do you live? I am due to Revalidate for the first time even though I'm emigrating soon.  I don't want my UK registration to lapse either so I could do with doing mine soon too. X

Hi Lorna, yes I'm still in the UK.  We're moving to the Gold Coast soon.  I was thinking if you were on Gold Coast I could help you xx

well you could still help me but I need to revalidate by end of this month....can we swap details? Make sure you arrange with someone in UK to do your revalidation with so you don't end up in my position down the track!
