Jurisprudence exam no longer a requirement for registered midwives

Aug 19, 2021

​Effective immediately, the Jurisprudence exam is being discontinued as a registration requirement for registered midwives. Applicants who were waiting to write the exam will no longer be required to complete it. This change enables BCCNM to continue to work toward a consistent and integrated approach to jurisprudence in B.C. and is in alignment with other Canadian midwifery regulators. Applicants who have registered to write the exam will be refunded their exam fee.

The online jurisprudence course, Essential Information on Midwifery Practice in B.C., and the B.C. Jurisprudence Course Handbook will continue to be available. We strongly recommend all applicants complete the course in order to provide new registrants with a comprehensive overview of the expectations of them as registered professionals, and the legislation, regulations and standards that regulate their practice in British Columbia. All registrants who have completed the module will have the completion documented in their BCCNM record.
