Continuing education is defined by ACNM as a learning experience
beyond basic midwifery education, intended for CNMs/CMs. ACNM approved CEUs are
those officially recognized by the Continuing Education (CE) Section of the
ACNM Division of Education. This does not imply individual state recognition
for nursing CEUs.
Continuing education is considered formal education
programs/activities for professional development and training, or for credentialing,
for which academic credit is not awarded. The educational experience should be
designed to enlarge upon and go beyond the professional knowledge and skills
learned in a midwifery education program, refresher course or internship, and/or
to be outside of or in addition to routine professional obligations and responsibilities.
Continuing education activities should promote professional goals for increased
competency and excellence, and should be characterized by programs designed to
introduce newly emerging concepts, principles, theories and research in health care.
