Application for Student Registration

In accordance with the Bylaws of the BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM), an individual who is currently enrolled as a student in a midwifery education program recognized by BCCNM is eligible for Student midwife registration. A Student midwife registrant may only provide midwifery services in connection with fulfilling the conditions and requirements of the recognized midwifery education program in which the student is enrolled.

A Student midwife registrant’s registration will be cancelled if the student ceases to be enrolled in a BCCNM recognized midwifery education program.
