Application Instructions for a Provisional License as a Student Midwife |
Specific requirements are detailed in the Rules and Regulations which are published on the Board’s web page.
Please review the requirements prior to submitting an application.
- In compliance with U.S. Code Title 8, Chapter 14, Section 1621, the Board must collect proof of U.S. citizenship, or proof of legal presence in the U.S. This proof is required only once for each U.S. citizen. Those with alien status will be required to submit proof with every renewal. In most cases it is easiest for you to provide us with a copy of your birth certificate, copy of your social security card or a copy of your passport. Just one (1) form of identification is required. A copy of your driver’s license is not acceptable. If you cannot provide any of these items, please refer to list A and B.
- The Board cannot review your qualifications without receipt of an application and fee.
- Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
- The application fee is $400.00. Make checks payable to the "State of Wyoming". Do not send cash. All fees are non-refundable regardless of the outcome.
- Every effort will be made to review your application within two (2) to five (5) business days of completion.
- MEAC stands for the Midwifery Education Accreditation Council.
