Event Description

This is a review course to provide concentrated instruction just prior to taking the AMCB Certification Exam to become a certified nurse-midwife. The presenters, Dr. Cara Busenhart and Dr. Melissa Stec, have been presenting this same content at the annual ACNM Conference for many years. We cannot guarantee successful certification by AMCB with your attendance. However, we look forward to helping our attendees become better prepared for sitting for the AMCB certification exam.

This year, we are offering two options - a two-day review course with extra content and practice or a condensed one-day review. We need at least 20 individuals to register for both days otherwise we will only offer the course for one day. Every year, students have requested more content so we encourage you to register for the two-day review.
