I wanna be a midwife...

  1. 0 Hi,
    I am a new member. And so far I really am enjoying myself...

    Anyways. I am currently in nursing school. I am in my senior year with my graduation in May of 2004. I would like to go on and be a midwife. But I am not to sure on how to go about that. I am thinking that I wasted 3 years in nursing school when I could of just gone right on to midwifery school. Also what type of things do I need to qualify for midwifery school?
    Thanks for any help that you can offer me. I am in upstate ny if anyone knows of school around here I can go to...

    talk to ya soon,
