Reflective Reading Club for Nurse Validation

WHL - Journal Clubs - Reflective Reading Club for Nurse Validation - Introduction
Held once a month, the Reflective Reading Club will earn you a valuable 3 hours of credited CPD time that you can use towards the 35 hours of CPD that you need to revalidate. Our meetings take just 1.5 hours, so just ask your manager!
This is how the Reflective Reading Club works:
  • You let us know you are interested and tell us your preferred attendance date by emailing
  • We send you a journal article and a small checklist of points to consider when reading it. Make notes as you read the paper - you do this in your own time and this earns you 1.5 hours CPD time
  • We meet for the club online via Microsoft Teams and discuss the article in a small group, reflecting on points whilst working our way through the checklist. Any notes that you make on the checklist can be written up into a reflective piece and submitted into your portfolio as evidence of reflective activities – this earns you another 1.5 hours of CPD time.
  • YOU GET A CERTIFICATE of participation and attendance! You can attend 2 sessions that will count for a total of 6 CPD hours!
