Are you prepared for revalidation?
All nurses and midwives in the UK are required to complete the revalidation process every 3 years in order to renew their registration. This book explores key areas of revalidation such as adult learning and CPD, personal reflection and growth, and improving practice by obtaining and learning from practice-related feedback.
This handy guide contains a wealth of tips and advice for all nurses and midwives to help to make the process more understandable and manageable.
* Practical suggestions and examples for engaging in relevant continuing professional development (CPD)
* Introduces methods to help complete the reflective accounts
* Provides support to prepare for the reflective discussion and confirmation process
* Features 'Time Out' boxes and activities throughout that can be used for reflection on practice and support personal development
* Practical ideas for portfolio development
Essential reading for all NMC registrants, regardless of practice setting, as well as student nurses and midwives who will need to undergo revalidation throughout their careers. Employers will also find this book helpful when supporting staff with revalidation.

"The book is structured in an accessible way and is designed to really assist registrants through the revalidation process. I particularly like the frequent activities built in as the reader progresses through the chapters."

"This book is a first of its kind and as the title suggest it's a journey where the authors walks with the readers step by step to a successful revalidation destination.
The authors are evidently well vast with this subject matter and had produced a book that is beautifully laid out, easy to read without being patronizing."
