A certified nurse midwifery (CNM) degree is not required to work as a midwinder.
It is, however, recommended that you apply for it, and that you complete it in one year of work experience.
The certificate is awarded by the College of Nurses of Ontario, a Registered College of Midwives (RCM) that oversees all midwits in Ontario.
This is the first certification to be awarded in the province.
There are four types of certificates that can be obtained: the RN-A (RN+A), RN+B, RN+C, and RN+D.
RN+A and RN-B are the most popular, while RN+ C is the most recent.
You can choose either an RN+ A or RN+ B certificate.
To get a RN+1 certificate, you need a minimum of nine years of RN experience, plus six years of practising as a nurse midgeman.
The RN+2 certificate is for those with RN+ 1 or RN-2 experience.
It’s awarded to those with a total of 15 years of experience.
If you’ve been in the profession for 15 years or more, you’ll be able to complete the RN+3 certificate and have it recognised by the profession.
To apply for an RN-1 certificate and for a RN-4 certificate, go to the Ontario Nursing and Midwiferies Board’s website.
You must complete the courses as they are listed on their website.
In the RN Certificate and Nursing Training Program (NMTP), you must complete six years in the RN certificate and eight years in an RN plus B. In RN+ and RN–1, you must be a member of the RN (RN) and RN (RN+B) classes.
In other words, you’re required to complete six weeks of RN training, which is the minimum amount you can do.
You should also be able do an RN Certificate in Nursing Management or a Nurse Practitioner in Nursing.
The CMM cert is awarded for those who have been practising in the field for three years or less.
You need to be at least 21 years old and have a minimum 6.6 GPA.
You may apply for the CMM certificate if you’ve completed two or more of the following: two years of advanced nursing education (such as a certificate in nursing, clinical nursing or nursing management)
