Virtual Clinical Experiences – Extended
NARM will allow two virtual clinicals to apply to the Continuity of Care clinical requirements for CPM candidates and NARM Preceptor registrants for each Continuity of Care Client: one prenatal in the final trimester and one postpartum done anytime between 24 hours and six weeks post birth.
NARM has extended this allowance to be in place for clinicals which take place between March 1, 2020 and June 1, 2021.
Guidelines for documentation are available here.
CPR and NRP Policy – Extended
As of June 1, 2021, all initial Certification and Recertification applications will need to meet NARM’s pre-COVID NRP and CPR requirements. Many classes have pivoted to a hybrid of online/virtual section plus in-person skills testing to meet COVID-19 guidelines.
These hybrid courses will meet the NARM requirements in addition to traditional fully in-person courses available in many locations.
Guidelines for requirements are available here.
Cultural Awareness Policy – Updated
NARM has updated its Cultural Awareness policy. Currently, NARM requires all initial Certifications to include a course on Cultural Awareness.
As of January 1, 2022, all Recertification and Preceptor applications will also need to include a workshop, module, or course on Cultural Awareness every three years as part of the application for Recertification.
A newly expanded list of Cultural Awareness courses is available here.
