Nurse Tools is an online appraisal and revalidation system specifically designed for Nurses.
Nurse Tools provides a secure platform for your revalidation documentation. You fill it in through the revalidation cycle with your CPD activities and work profile.
Near your revalidation date, you nominate your NMC Colleague, who can then view your reflective accounts and ‘sign off’ the NMC Colleague reflective discussion form.
You can also nominate a ‘confirmer’ who will have access to your documentation in order to ‘sign off’ the NMC confirmation form.
Intuitive design workflow management makes it easy for you to complete all the NMC revalidation requirements.
Please note: We do not force you to nominate your colleague and/or confirmer through Nurse Tools. These methods are for your own convenience. If you wish to just use Nurse Tools as on online store of your CPD documentation which you can then print off whenever you wish, you are welcome to do so.
Nurse Tools’ ethos is built around being an open and free environment for all nurses.
