This is my first post here, though I have learned a lot by lurking here for a while.
So, midwifery is my passion and I'm an adult returning to school to pursue a degree in midwifery.
I am slated to graduate with my (non-nursing) Bachelor's in September 2013.
I am lucky enough to live in NY where CM's have all the same rights to practice as CNM's and I am looking to go to SUNY Downstate or Philadelphia University's MS in Midwifery programs where nurses and non-nurses learn side-by-side and sit for the same ACMB test to become CNM's and CM's respectively.
My question is - if I ever move out of NY (no such plans, but you never know), AFTER I'm a Certified Midwife, can I theoretically become an RN then and be considered a CNM?
I hope I am making sense...
Thank you in advance for any insight into this.
