Hi! I just joined allnurses and I think it is a wonderful resource! I am in a graduate entry program in nursing and I want to be a midwife. I am considering transferring schools
, and I was hoping for some thoughts regarding a great midwifery program. I am looking for a stellar education, with supportive faculty members/mentors, great clinical experiences (I would like experiences outside of the hospital, too), and a liberal midwifery-friendly philosophy of care. I have seen some programs that seem to educate students to be like mini-OBGYNs, and that is not what I am looking for. I want to learn all the necessary clinical skills, but I want to be shaped as a midwife--if that makes any sense! I am single and I can move anywhere; I am thinking about UCSF, Yale and Penn, and from posts on this site, Frontier. Anyone have any thoughts on those programs, or others to recommend??
