I am a British trained, direct entry midwife. By that, I mean I have a University degree in midwifery but no prior training as a nurse. I have done some research and have found that the nearest job title/qualification to mine is a Certified Midwife in NJ, NY and RI.
I am looking into emigrating to Rhode Island and am planning on converting my qualifications through University of Philidelphia to eventually gain licensure.
What I am finding hard though is getting information about job opportunities for Certified Midwives. The hospitals have not been very communicative with me when I ask if they employ CM's or solely CNM's to work in their units.
Does anybody have any idea about the employability of CM's in RI specifically but also NY and NJ?
Thank you so much for your time
