*** Please note important information about registration fees and renewal ***
Every year you will retain your registration with the NMC by paying an annual fee of £120. Once every three years, alongside paying your fee, you must apply to renew your registration through the revalidation process.
It is important to remember that you must pay your fee and submit your renewal information before your due date. If you do not pay your fee and submit your renewal information before your due date your registration will automatically lapse. If this happens, the only way you can regain your registration is by applying for readmission. This process could take up to six weeks. During the readmission process you wouldn't be able to practice.
Please note that you can now choose whether to pay your annual registration fee in quarterly instalments by direct debit (£30 each quarter), or in a single £120 payment. Read more information about paying your registration fees here.
As you will know the NMC Council has made the decision to introduce revalidation for all nurses and midwives in the UK - the most significant change to Nurse regulation in a generation.
As a nurse Revalidation means that you will have to demonstrate on a regular basis that you are able to deliver care in a safe, effective and professional way. All nurses and midwives will have to show they are staying up to date in their practice and living the values of the code of conduct by reflecting on your practice and engaging in discussions with colleagues.
For the first time, you will also have to obtain confirmation that you have met all the requirements before applying to renew your place on the register every three years.
To support you the NMC have published a supporting guide on How to Revalidate, which describes what you need to do. There are also plenty of additional resources and information (including templates) to guide you through the process avaliable below.
