New preceptor policy?

Postby BVMidwife » Wed Apr 21, 2010 8:12 pm

A preceptor for a NARM PEP applicant must be credentialed as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), or Licensed Midwife who has an additional three years of experience or 50 births, including ten (10) continuity of care births beyond the primary birth experience requirements for CPM certification. (effective June 1, 2010) A preceptor who does not meet the above requirements may request an exemption by filling out the preceptor application form on this web site.

Does this mean that if a CPM does not meet these qualifications that we can NOT take any apprentices, or just that it won't count towards their PEP application. I live in a very small area and I'm planning to teach some classes for apprentices, this will at least give them a place to start since they have no other options, but I want to be clear if this policy prohibits accepting apprentices :? ?
I would make sure they understand this policy if it is allowed, just doesn't count :!:
Thanks,

Sharon,
NARM would never tell a midwife she can't take on apprentices. The policy means that as of June 1, 2010 any clinical and/or skill signed off in the application must be done so by a preceptor who meets the new requirements. Clinicals and/or skills that occurred prior to that date may be signed off by preceptors who met the earlier preceptor requirements.
