All nurses must receive an annual appraisal from a Registered Nurse of a more senior grade – all ACI Registered Nurses who perform appraisal have received NHS England appraiser training.
Every 3 years nurses must go through the revalidation process to remain registered with the NMC. Agencies have a responsibility to support their nurses through the revalidation process and to provide access to a confirmer.
Agency nurses can sometimes find it difficult to appoint a “line manager” as their NMC confirmer.
ACI are able to act as confirmer for the revalidation process and at the same time provide a reflective discussion with the nurse to use as part of the process.
