    Hi Hilka, (and Skylark)
    Thankyou for your reply.
    I have enough CPD"S and have completed my reflective disscusion, however step 7 out of 15 on the NMC website asks for a UK Pin # of the person you had the reflective discussion with. There is no way moving forward past this step.

    I need a UK Pin # and contact details to be entered in on the NMC online website for revalidating my registration and to proceed to the next step.

    We are all in the same situation!

    If you have Whatsapp or Skype, one of us can help with a "virtual" discussion, then you mail us the form to sign and state our PIN number.

    The confirmer just has to be someone you work with, they do not have to have an NMC PIN number

    Hi everyone,

    I live and work in Oz and need to revalidate for UK registration by 1 Jan 2018. Is there another nurse in the same situation who has a UK PIN and would be happy to be a confirmer. I will return the favour. If you can help please email tracym@unimelb.edu.au.

    Thanks.

    You have left it very late.
    I also have to revalidate next month, and started this thread over a year ago because it was obvious it was going to be complicated when overseas.


    And you also need to go back and read the instructions.
    Your confirmer does not need to be an NMC registered nurse.

    You need to have your professional discussion with an NMC registered nurse, and they need to sign off that the conversation took place.
    The discussion should be based around your five reflective studies.

    Once you have all your papers together, then they need to be reviewed and signed off by your confirmer, who does not need to be NMC registered, but would be your manager or someone in a similar position, with a checkable professional qualification, who you know in a professional capacity.

    Thank you,
    I have now been contacted by a nurse who is willing to have the reflective discussion with me.
