MEAC Accredited Direct Entry Midwifery Education
College Without Walls
NCM's self-paced, flexible, apprenticeship-based programs are adaptable to the unique needs of the student and preceptor. Students study in their own community or create a study plan that allows them to travel to other cities or countries. Our comprehensive academic and clinical programs result in either an Associates Degree in Midwifery (ASM) or a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery (BSM). Students begin their program whenever they are ready with our rolling enrollment. Our program supports students in one-on-one apprenticeships as well as students in larger group study placements. Applicable transfer credits are accepted from accredited colleges. Our ASM program prepares students for state licensure and/or national certification whereas our BSM Bridge program is for midwives who are already licensed and certified.
NCM’s logo is meant to signify the midwife as the deliverer of spiritual abundance. The logo depicts a goddess offering her breasts and cornucopia to infants. This is based on the Greco-Roman myth of Gaia/Terra/Mother Earth, one of whose attributes is the cornucopia, meaning harvest, prosperity, unending nourishment, or spiritual abundance. The cornucopia is the horn of the Goddess Amalthea, whose milk nourished Zeus.
