hey everyone, I'm looking for advice on a CNM career
i recently graduated with a BSN from Boston College and have known for a while that I want to work as a midwife. however, with the job market the way it is, I decided to accept a new grad position in a pedi emergency dept as my first job instead of holding out for L and D. I think I can pay off my undergrad loans in about 2 years, and my question is should I apply to CNM programs after 2 years of this job or should I seek an L and D position first? I had the opportunity to work with a number of wonderful CNMs at a Boston Hospital during my L and D senior practicum, and I know it's what I really want to do, I just want to get a sense of what will make me more marketable to schools
. Any input is welcome and appreciated. Thanks!
