Becoming a Preceptor

NCM is Always Looking for New Clinical Preceptors! 

Passing on the skills and passion for midwifery work is one of the biggest gifts a midwife can give to the world.  As an NCM preceptor, you will have the freedom to script a unique agreement with your student(s) based on how your distinctive practice dovetails with your students’ educational goals.  This autonomy and flexibility, along with needed guidance and support from NCM staff makes it especially gratifying to be a preceptor with NCM.  

The preceptor must hold at least the academic credential sought by the midwifery student. For NCM ASM Courses with the prefix of “MW” or Core Midwifery curriculum, it is College policy is to recognize the CPM credential or local state midwifery licensing as equivalent to the ASM degree.  

Midwives practicing in states where licensure is required must provide a copy of current licensure in order to be approved.  Approved preceptors must maintain their licensure/certification as required by their state, unencumbered by holds/investigations/disciplinary action of any kind during active instruction and supervision of their NCM student(s).​
