Starting July 1, 2024, the bill authorizes individuals who have a
midwife certification from the American Midwifery Certification Board,
pay the required fee, and submit to a criminal history record check to
obtain a license from the state board of nursing (board) to practice as a
certified midwife in the state. A certified midwife licensed by the board
may apply for and obtain provisional and full prescriptive authority upon
satisfying the requirements specified in the bill. Certified midwives are
subject to regulation by the board to the same extent that the board
regulates the practice of nursing, including grounds for discipline and
disciplinary actions.
