The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has published information on the success of the first round of revalidation, which began in April.
Latest figures show that 90.48 per cent (14,362 of 15,873) of nurses and midwives who were due to revalidate, have successfully done so and renewed their registration with the NMC. 1,401 nurses and midwives have left the register but the NMC is confident this number is in line with normal April attrition rate data.
A small number of applications (106) have been granted extensions or are subject to additional checks by the NMC.
