I'm curious about how many have gone CNM route, only to decide that CNM was not a good choice.
In the past month I have heard several people tell me that they thought CNM was what they wanted, only to find out that it was not at all what they wanted. The last person I heard from was not someone I was close enough to ask "why?" to - and honestly, I feel like I do not even want to hear the "why" because the only reason I went into nursing is to obtain my CNM. However, I feel like if this is something common, I should probably stop ignoring it and pay attention to at least rule it out. I still have one semester left of nursing school
, so I have time. But I have a background in midwifery (assistant/homebirth), doula, CBE, etc. So I am fairly positive this is what I want. However, many of these other women were too, so I am curious to hear what exactly changed their minds.
Also, besides Emory - does anyone know of other dual CNM/FNP programs? I prefer FNP over WHNP if possible.
Thanks in advance!
