The test will begin at 8:00am. Candidates should arrive at the test site by 7:45 to allow time to find the testing room and to check in. Every effort is made to have the proctor arrive and open the test room by 7:45, but some test sites may not open until 8:00am.
Candidates must bring their Admission Letter and an attached small photo, and another form of photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport with the same name and a similar photo.
The exam is given in two parts of 175 questions each. Part one is distributed after all candidates have been checked in at the test site and identified by the proctor. When part one is finished, the booklets and answer sheets are turned in to the proctor and the candidate may leave until part two begins at 1:00pm. When part two is completed, all materials must be returned to the proctor before the candidate leaves the room. Candidates may leave whenever they are finished.

NARM will provide a release of information form with the test results. This form may be sent to NARM to request that scores be sent to a school or a state agency.
Some schools have release forms signed by the student upon enrollment in the school, and the school sends the release form to NARM after testing. The National College of Midwifery, the National Midwifery Institute, and the Florida School of Traditional Midwifery automatically send the release forms to NARM if their students are testing.
If the state requires passing the NARM Exam for licensure, candidates may request that their test scores be sent by NARM as soon as the scores are released to the candidate. If the state requires the full CPM credential for licensure, it is better to send the release form only after the CPM credential has been received. For a copy of the release form, click here.
