Midwifery Students

Do you have ideas or concerns you'd like to share with ACNM? Contact Lilian Medhus, BSN RN student representative to the ACNM Board of Directors.

Would you like to be more directly involved in addressing student issues with the ACNM? Become a liaison from your school to the Student and New Midwives Section (SANMS) of the ACNM Division of Education. Contact Co-Chairs Heather Hines, CNM DNP or Shannon Keller, CNM about representing your education program as one of the SANMS liaisons. Are you interested in learning more about how a student becomes a representative to the ACNM Board of Directors? Learn more about the SANMS and BOD positions. To date, here are the students who have served.

Student Report

The purpose of the student report is to provide student members of ACNM with an opportunity to address the ACNM BOD, ACNM staff, ACNM leadership and the general membership about the issues/concerns that they would like to see addressed by the College and to share their vision of how these issues/concerns might be addressed.

Each year during the months leading up to the ACNM Annual Meeting, student liaisons (one from each education program) collect information from their classmates about content to include and begin drafting the report. The final report is written by the liaisons during face-to-face meetings at the Annual Meeting and delivered to the membership by selected liaisons during the closing business meeting. Following the Annual Meeting, the ACNM Board of Directors carefully reviews the report to determine the need for potential action to be taken by various ACNM volunteer divisions or national office departments in order to address points that were raised by students.

Financial Aid—Initial leads and resources to help finance your midwifery education.

Prepare for your Certification— ACNM wants to help you succeed in becoming a certified nurse-midwife or certified midwife. There are several ways to study for your American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) certification exam. Knowing that everyone has different learning styles and preferences, we are proud to offer you 3 options to choose from!

  1. Order the ACNM Exam Prep Workbook and review the material at your own pace. The workbook covers the 6 modules tested in an outline format to review information.

  2. Attend the ACNM LIVE Exam Prep Workshop at the annual meeting each year. In this two-day interactive workshop, midwifery professors review key information and case studies with students from across the country.

  3. Utilize the ACNM ONLINE Exam Prep Course. We created this option for those that cannot attend the in-person training at the Annual Meeting. It has voiced-over case studies and a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation that reviews content covered by the AMCB exam. This is much more self-paced than the in-person workshop and gives you 90 days to complete it. We review this content regularly to ensure you have the most recent information relevant to the exam.

We hope you find these resources helpful in your graduate studies.

Are you nearing graduation? Check out our resources for new midwives (members only) which will help you to transition from student to practicing midwife!
