Looking for a good CNM school in Georgia State

  1. I'm moving soon and really want to continue my education. I've earned my associates degree in nursing and currently work in a hospital's long term care wing as an RN- not my top choice, but slim pickings in a small town with too many nurses. I can't advance my education from where I am now without doing online classes, so I thought I would continue on when I move. I plan to move to the alpharetta, cumming area in Georgia to be close to my dad who moved there 5 or 6 years ago. Originally I was moving there just to get away and have more options, but now I feel like I need to have a real purpose to leave my home town. I have sought to be a midwife since before I started nursing school, so now is a great time to go back to school. I really want to find a good school. Also I have no idea how long it takes to go from ADN to midwife. If anyone has any info, please share. Thanks

    Emory is your only regular option. Very pricy but seems to be a great program. Otherwise the distance programs- Frontier, Case Western, maybe some others. I don't know if it is still there, but I used the website allnursingschools.com to look for grad programs. Good luck! Not to be a downer, but Georgia is not a great state for midwifery practice. In my opinion, midwives here tend to be utilized as physician extenders. Mostly they are hired by physician practices to increase patient volumes and do the low risk deliveries. There are very few (but they are out there!) providing midwifery care or midwife only practices. It is mostly ob-model care with a midwife touch-- myself included unfortunately.
