NARM Announces End of Internationally Educated Midwife Route

July 17, 2018: The Internationally Educated Midwife (IEM) route for applicants who were trained outside of the United States (with the exception of UK legally recognized midwives) has been discontinued.

If you are in the middle of your IEM application and have not yet heard from NARM, please contact the NARM applications department immediately at:

PO Box 420
Summertown, TN 38483
applications@narm.org
888-842-4784

Internationally educated midwives can apply for certification in one of the following routes:

  • Complete the PEP application with all PEP clinical experience in the U.S. or Canada or
  • Attend a MEAC accredited educational program (meacschools.org).

All internationally educated midwives should be aware that licensure for midwives in the U.S. is different in every state. Obtaining a CPM credential is not the same as obtaining a state license to practice. Midwives who are seeking to work as a midwife in a specific state should research the requirements for licensure in that state.

Please visit our website at narm.org or contact us via 888-842-4784 if you have further questions.
