Hello everyone! I want to become a CNM. I was planning to go into a Master's Entry program since I have a BS in biology already and work in a pathology lab. This way I would get the RN and go immediately on for the CNM, but I recently met someone who told me that he would strongly discourage me from that route. He expalined that it would be much better for me to go back to school to become an RN, work for a year or so, and then return to school for CNM because I would have a difficult time finding a job without some clinical work experience outside of the academic program. If anyone has any thoughts, please share them! Should I get the RN and work for a while, or try to go right into an accelerated RN/CNM program? Help!
