Midwifery program at NYU

  1. 1 Hello,

    I wanted to get some feedback from students who are or have gone through the nurse-midwifery program at NYU. I'm looking at applying to NYU, and would love to hear what students/midwives think of the program. Also was it easy to find a job after graduating?

    Thanks!

    Hey Sweetiie17,

    Happy Holidays!

    Sorry about the late reply. I have been away from my computer and am now following up with messages.

    I did hear back from the director of the program about setting up an interview in the next few days. I am very excited and hope it's a positive sign that she is interested in meeting with me. She asked me to bring in a list of questions that I have about the program.

    Did you apply yet? I sent my application in November 10th and heard back from the director a week and a half later.

    Thanks,
    MelitaRN

    Hey Sweetiie17,

    I interviewed last Tuesday and it went very well. The program director is very nice and passionate about her profession.

    I am excited about the program and cannot wait to get my letter advising me of my acceptance. Did you receive anything yet? From what I understand, the paperwork was being handed over to another person for processing and a letter sent confirming acceptance.

    Thanks!

    Hi MelitaRN,

    No I haven't received anything yet. She had also told me that the paperwork was being handed over to another person for processing. She had mentioned that the person would be out for a week, but not to worry that I should receive it soon. Hopefully we get it this week!! Although she said I would be getting an acceptance letter, I'm not celebrating until it's officially in my hands. I'll let you know when I receive it! Congrats to you!!!

    Hi Sweetiie17,

    I just wanted to let you know that I received my acceptance letter yesterday. In addition, they sent the course schedule for the Spring semester, information on orientation/registration, and on setting yourself up as a student at NYU.

    Hope all is well.

    Thanks!

    Hi ladies! I'm a fellow NYU student. Currently I'm enrolled in the duo degree program and going back to school to get my masters in nursing. I'm having a very hard time deciding whether to follow my passion for Midwifery or do Fnp since it's a safer route. I don't know where in the progress you guys are in this program, but would like to hear from you about this program at NYU. I just have a few questions, if you can kindly answer for me.

    1) Is it a rigorous program? What is the program composed of in terms of clinicals and classes?
    2) Does it have both online and in-class courses? I signed up for research this summer and it has both.
    3) Did you do full time or part time work while attending school?
    4) How's the job market currently? Were you able to find a mentor or an internship?
    5) Did NYU offer clinical settings or do you have to go find one yourself?
    6) How's the liability and malpractice insurance for midwifery?
    7) where are you intend to work after graduation? at a hospital setting? private clinic? birthing center?

    I'm excited about this journey ahead, but just need a little push on the way. Any tips and information would be helpful and appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!
