Entry Level

Beginning August 1, 2013 all preceptors must register with NARM in order to continue/receive qualified preceptor verification. To register, submit a complete preceptor registration form.  The preceptor registration form may be downloaded here.

The Portfolio Evaluation Process (PEP) is a valuable educational option for CPM candidates, allowing for hands-on apprenticeship training for student midwives. In order to maintain the integrity of the PEP process, it is necessary to register all midwives who choose to become preceptors of PEP candidates.

A preceptor for a NARM PEP applicant must be credentialed as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) or Certified Midwife (CM), or Licensed Midwife. The preceptor must have an additional 3 years of experience or 50 births, including 10 continuity of care births beyond the experience requirements for CPM certification. Preceptors must have attended at least 10 births in the last 3 years.
