The Midwifery Education Program was recognized by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education in July because its graduates achieved a 100% pass rate on the American Midwifery Certification Board certification examination. They will now recieve the designation of certified nurse midwife (CNM).

All 93 graduates since the program's inception in 1992 have passed the AMCB exam on their first try, according to program director Barbara Graves, CNM, MN, MPH, FACNM.

The MEP was established in 1992 by Susan DeJoy CNM, PhD, Chief of Midwifery and Community Health. Barbara Graves CNM, MN, MPH, who took over as program director in 1998, will be retiring in September.
