NET 2018 Conference: The impact of Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) revalidation on the identity of academic staff in a higher education institution in the United Kingdom and its importance to students: A mixed-methods study

Research paper

This paper reports on the initial impact and contribution of revalidation to professional identity amongst nurses and midwives working in higher education and the impact of staff’s professional identity on students. Participants identified strongly as nurses and midwives first and academics second. Students valued the clinical experiences of lecturers but did not expect them to have clinical currency whereas academic staff were self-conscious about the amount of time away from practice. The implications of academic staff identity as registrants in higher education is discussed.
