RULE §831.14License Renewal

Licensed midwives must apply for license renewal during the last January of each two-year renewal period. The Midwifery Program will send renewal applications to licensed midwives during the last December of each renewal period. However, each midwife is solely responsible for compliance with the requirements for license renewal, and nonreceipt of the renewal application mailed by the Midwifery Program shall not constitute an acceptable excuse for failure to comply. A midwife's application for license renewal must include the following:

  (1) a completed license renewal application form which shall require the provision of the preferred mailing address and telephone number, and a statement of all misdemeanor and felony offenses for which the licensee has been convicted, along with any other information required by the Board;

  (2) proof of completion of at least 20 contact hours of approved midwifery education since March 1 of the previous two-year renewal period;

  (3) proof of current CPR certification for health care providers by the American Heart Association; equivalent certification for the professional rescuer from the Red Cross; equivalent certification for healthcare and professional rescuer from the National Safety Council; or equivalent certification issued by any provider of CPR certification for health care providers currently accepted by the department's Office of EMS/Trauma Systems Coordination;

  (4) proof of current certification for neonatal resuscitation, §§1 - 4, from the American Academy of Pediatrics;

  (5) a nonrefundable renewal fee; and

  (6) proof of passing the jurisprudence examination approved by the Midwifery Board in the four years preceding renewal.
