Bachelor's of Science in Midwifery Application

Thank you for your interest in the National College of Midwifery!

This application is for our Bachelor of Science in Midwifery program, which has both Academic (online classes) and Clinical (community-based practice) components.  

This form must be completed in one sitting and cannot be saved to be completed later. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

- If you already have a community-based clinical preceptorship lined up and are ready to do both the academic and clinical components of your training, please proceed with this application. 
- However, if you do not have a clinical preceptor lined up, you cannot apply as a degree student yet. There may another route for you! There are many ways to engage with NCM's curriculum.

This form is the first step in the application process. It requires a non-refundable electronic payment of the application fee of $100 by debit, credit card, or paypal upon submission.

Once you have completed this form and paid the application fee, within 1-2 days you will receive information on proceeding with the second step of the application process, which requires proof of completion of the Student Orientation Course (this course will take several hours and will give you important information on NCM's unique model). We do not process applications from Dec 15 - Jan 15th (Calendar).

The third step will request further information from you, require a copy of your midwifery license/certification, and generate a contract between you and your community-based clinical preceptor.  This third step will also need to be done in one sitting, and requires payment of the full clinical audit fee upon submission.
