If you are currently licensed or hold other legal recognition from one of the states approved by NARM, where your educational requirements have been documented through the state’s process, you can qualify for certification if you have taken the NARM written examination for state licensure or recognition.
List of States Approved by NARM for licensure-certification reciprocity:
Candidates who are legally recognized in states approved by NARM must:
- Fulfill the General Education Requirements.
- Complete the appropriate NARM application forms.
- Submit a notarized copy of current state/country credential (i.e. certification, licensure, or registration).
If you are currently licensed in an approved state and did NOT take the NARM written examination for licensure, you will need to take the exam to qualify for certification. Upon approval of the application materials and receipt of exam fees, the NARM Written Examination will be scheduled.
The Certified Professional Midwife certification will be issued after all requirements are met.
The Candidate Information Booklet (CIB) is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of the certification process. It is recommended that all candidates have a copy of the CIB as they move through the process of documentation of experience, knowledge and skills.
The CIB also contains information on the NARM Skills and Written Exams, including test specifications and textbook lists. A paper copy can be ordered through the applications department or you can simply download an electronic copy.
