Nurse Appraisal

NMC registered nurses and midwives must receive an annual appraisal from an NMC Registered Nurse in a Senior Role. The primary aim of an appraisal is to identify personal and professional development and educational needs, with the ultimate aim of improving clinical performance and patient care.

MEDSU Nurse Appraisers have all received comprehensive Appraiser Training to enable them to provide a formative and meaningful Appraisal experience to all nurses to prepare them for Confirmation and NMC Revalidation.

Nurse Reflection

Our network of registered NMC practitioners are trained to conduct Reflective Discussion meetings either during or separate to an Appraisal, and can verify and validate written reflective accounts prior to Confirmation.

Nurse Confirmers & Revalidation

We provide a Confirmation Service supporting nurses who do not have access to an appropriate person or Line Manager, offering continuity of relationship, independent of geographic location and spanning all work contexts throughout their career.

Our Confirmers are all registered NMC senior nurses who can empathise with nursing staff, understand their employment situation, abilities, limitations and opportunities, making them best placed to review and verify a completed portfolio prior to revalidation submission.

Pre-Employment Clinical Interviews

For healthcare organisations, we also offer a network of senior clinicians who are trained to conduct pre-employment interviews and language checks for all healthcare practitioners in accordance with the requirements of the NHS Agency Supply Frameworks.
