Getting into Midwife school- Frontier?
- 0Aug 12, '03 by marilynmomHow many years experience as an RN do you need before applying to midwife school?
Me and a friend are both interested in Frontier- what is the average applicant like who applies and how many years experience as an RN do they have?
How competitve is it to get into a midwife school?? Is it like most nursing schools where there is more applying than accepted?
Is there are way to go from BSN-Master's right away or is the experience necessary in between programs.
I dont mean to sound stupid, but it is something we have been wondering about. Any info would be great

A BSN is not required, but have a bachelors in some discipline is. You will also have to take either a Miller Analogy Test (MAT) or Graduate Record Exam(GRE) if you do not already have a masters or phd.
I have several friends who are graduates of Frontier and are very successful CNMs. They have all voiced pros and cons of the program, which is par for about anything.
I applaud you for your interest and hope you attain your dreams!
