I am a nursing student now, working on a BSN. I have job shadowed a CNM, and I thought I really wanted to do that. Recently, I have been discouraged by one of my nursing professors. She told me it is expensive to practice as a CNM (I'm from Michigan). Is that right? The midwife I shadowed never said anything about that to me. I have job shadowed a Neonatal Nurse Practioner, and I volunteer in the NICU, and I like that area too. I'm not sure what I want to do now, and I was hoping someone could give me advice about either CNM or NNP!
