Study Group Course Work is comprised of fifty-two modules, each module demanding focus on a particular topic and its context. The modules are designed to stimulate the self-motivation and passion for learning that are the hallmarks of the midwifery profession.
Before Completing Coursework
Prior to beginning to work on Study Group Course Work, please carefully read through the following links. This information will ensure you know how to approach study group and properly submit your work. The Self -Assessment test is for NMI to evaluate your basic knowledge and compare to your knowledge on graduation, as such, the score will not be released to you. It is a comprehensive exam and you will need to set aside a few hours to take it.

While Completing Coursework
At your initiation into NMI Study Group Coursework, you will be asked to complete a set of ten foundational modules to set a ground work for your transition into apprenticeship and more advanced modules. You can find them categorized below.
After you have completed your foundational modules, the remaining modules can be completed in any order but we recommend you ask your preceptor or the Study Group Instructor for advice on the next best module to complete. Simply select the next module you want to work on, and proceed. Modules are designed to be stand-alone topics that together complete a comprehensive picture of midwifery care. Allowing the bulk of module submission in any order is meant to enhance relevance of student learning, and have students complete modules as needed throughout their clinical education.
There are three final modules about the set-up and practicalities of midwifery practice. These are to be completed just before graduation from the program.
Once you have completed your module, submit it for review using the link below (also present on individual module pages).

After Completing All Coursework
Once you have submitted all modules an instructor will give you the password in order to access the exam. Take the Study Group Coursework post-test below. Your score will not be immediately released. The instructor will review missed questions and set up a time to talk to you about areas of focus for taking the NARM as well as test taking strategies. This should serve as a helpful review and preparation for the NARM exam.
