A practical guide to revalidation for nurses working in social care



The FoNS Centre for Nursing Innovation are delighted to share a new animation ‘A practical guide to revalidation for nurses working in social care’ which is supported and funded by the RCN Foundation.


FoNS believes that ‘revalidation is a positive opportunity because it encourages an ongoing process of sharing, reflecting and improving’, a view shared by Kate Lettin, Revalidation Officer, NMC who said ‘this is a very positive and practical video that will be extremely useful for nurses working in social care’.


Deepa Korea, Head of RCN Foundation said  “We are delighted to have funded this animation. The RCN Foundation recognises the challenges that nursing staff face every day in trying to live up to high expectations as well as providing care that is value based and person centred in a range of settings. We hope it has a positive impact not only for nurses in social care but to all nurses.”


FoNS Chief Executive, Dr Theresa Shaw said, “I am delighted we are launching this practical resource to help nurses working in social care prepare for revalidation. The social care sector plays a vital role in caring for people who are vulnerable, have long term care needs and/or are at the end of life; yet the nurses working in these areas can miss out on support and development opportunities.”


This free access, practical guide is one way in which FoNS is reaching out to offer support. The video animation is available via the FoNS website  and offers a step-by-step guide to nursing revalidation. The script is also available to download.
