Invitation to nurses working overseas to be interviewed on the NMC's new model of revalidation

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the UK regulator of nursing and midwifery, is consulting on a new model of revalidation for all nurses and midwives in the United Kingdom (UK).  

Revalidation is the new process by which registered nurses and midwives will be required to demonstrate to the NMC on a regular basis that they continue to remain fit to practise. This will involve updates to the Code of Conduct, and additional responsibilities for nurses and midwives to demonstrate that they are able to stay on the NMC’s register.

The NMC would like to gather the opinions of a wide range of nurses and midwives, including nurses who are practising outside of the UK but are registered with the NMC in the UK.

Ipsos MORI, an independent market and social research agency, will be holding a series of interviews to talk about this new process with nurses and midwives working overseas. The interview would be an informal discussion over the telephone lasting about an hour. They would pay £50 for time spent reading the revised draft Code of Conduct before the interview and during the interview.
