An important aspect of revalidation is evidence of good reflective practice by nurses, midwives and nursing associates. 

The NMC said that the revalidation process “Revalidation will provide benefits for you as a nurse, midwife or nursing associate as well as the people you care for.  It will help to encourage a culture of sharing, reflection and improvement and will be an ongoing process throughout your career.” 

The reflective aspect of revalidation consists of three parts: 

Five written reflective accounts – that explains what you learnt from your CPD activity and/or feedback and/or an event or experience in your practice, how you changed or improved your work as a result, and how this is relevant to the Code. 

Five pieces of practice-related feedback – Five pieces of notes on the content of the feedback and how you used it to improve your practice. 

Reflective discussion – You must have had a reflective discussion with another NMC registrant, covering your five written reflective accounts on your CPD and/or practice-related feedback and/or an event or experience in your practice and how this relates to the Code.
