The Registration Committee (RC) reviews and decides whether to approve or deny non-routine applications for initial registration, annual renewal, and reinstatement.


The RC members are a combination of midwife registrants, nurse registrants, and members of the public. Appointment terms are one, two, or three years. A person can serve on the RC committee for up to six consecutive years.


The RC generally meets by teleconference in panels of three committee members. Meetings are planned for two to three hours with preparation time equal to the length of the scheduled meeting. The total number of meetings an RC member attends varies. Committee members should be prepared to attend up to four meetings per year, in addition to an annual orientation.
