Revalidation came into effect as of April 2016. Under the new revalidation regulations, nurses are required to undertake 35 hours of CPD including 20 hours of participatory learning activities a year as well - get the bulk of what you need for revalidation at Best Practice in Nursing.

Be around like minded nurses

It's an exciting but stressful time for nurses and often primary care nursing can feel isolated.

At Best Practice in Nursing, you'll be able to speak to other nurses who share the same fears you do and are also working on gaining advanced skills and revalidating. With a reassuring speaker line up, informal workshops and a networking bar, there’s never been a better environment for the nursing community to come together to learn together.

Learn as a team

The beauty of having the Best Practice event next door means that it is very likely your practice managers and GPs will be attending anyway  - so you can come as a practice team and really share learnings and findings to benefit the practice and your patients for the following 12 months and more!
