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.
Effective January 1, 2022, will approve only CE applications for ACNM-produced educational content, or for ACNM state affiliates, ACNM Regional Meetings, ACME-accredited/pre-accredited education programs, and ACNM Educational Affiliates. As our professional environment has changed, we are responding to that change by focusing our internal resources on producing new educational content for our growing membership.
This change DOES NOT affect the process or fees for ACNM state affiliates, Region Meetings, and ACME-accredited/pre-accredited education programs.
If you would like to continue to submit your CE for approval, you may qualify to apply to become an ACNM Educational Affiliate. The criteria are as follows:
1. Midwifery or midwifery-related organization
2. Evidence of ability to produce quality educational offerings
3. Not for profit
4. Yearly fee for unlimited CE approvals.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how to apply. Affiliation may be renewed annually.
