The American College of Nurse-Midwives is the professional association for the Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) and Certified Midwife (CM). The Continuing Education Committee (CEC) of the ACNM has been assigned the responsibility for reviewing and approving all educational programs seeking ACNM CE credit. Only programs approved by either the CEC or organizations with which ACNM has approved CE reciprocity are awarded CEs officially recognized by the ACNM. This does not imply individual state recognition for nursing CEs.
Deadlines for Application
Programs 1-2 hours in length: Due 30 days prior to the program start date.
Programs longer than 2 hours: Due 45 days prior to the program start date.
Due dates ensure notification of program approval status prior to the program’s start date. Incomplete applications (e.g., lack of APA or AMA reference formatting) will delay the approval process. While ACNM’s volunteer CNM/CM reviewers attempt to complete all CE applications prior to their presentation date, program approval prior to the anticipated start date cannot be guaranteed for applications received after specified deadlines. This applies as well to an application submitted prior to its deadline but returned to the sponsor due to an incomplete/incorrect submission and the corrected application was received once again and then sent out for review after the designated deadline.
