Board History

The Liberian Board for Nursing & Midwifery (LBNM) was established in 1949 under the Nurse Practice Act of 1948. In 1952, the Board began licensing practicing nurses and midwives who were admitted to the Board as auxiliary members. In 1958 the Liberian Council of Midwives was established to assist with the implementation of the Board's functions. The functions included

  • Registering nurses in the Republic of Liberia;
  • Granting accreditation to all nursing and midwifery training programs;
  • Testing and licensing new graduates from nursing and midwifery programs
  • Renewing nursing licenses

The Council was merged into the Liberian Board for Nursing & Midwifery in 1975
