Thank you to the CPMs who participated in the Oakland, CA workshop!

Thank you to Kiki Jordan LM CPM, Pearl Yu LM CPM, and Anjali Sardeshmukh LM CPM for hosting the NARM Examination Development workshop on June 22-23, 2019 in Oakland, CA! There were ten participants—eight local midwives and two from out-of-state—plus three NARM Board members.

During this two-day workshop, participants learned the multi-step process for the NARM Examination development, history of licensure of CPMs from a national perspective, and about challenges and victories other CPMs experience across the country. This wonderful group of midwives wrote twenty-four new test questions and reviewed and edited thirty-six test questions from previous workshops!

Writing and Editing exam questions is a collaborative process.

Although the days were long and everyone worked hard, there was lots of laughter over coffee and meals. We graciously thank our hosts for opening up their birth center, arranging meals for everyone, encouraging busy midwives to spend their weekend with us, and most of all creating a space to not just develop exam questions but midwifery community as well.

If you are interested in participating in a NARM Examination Development workshop, please watch your email in-boxes for notifications in 2020.
