RN (Diploma) to CNM?

  1. 0 I went to nursing school in Germany and received a diploma in 2002. We moved to the US in 2005 and since this summer (2012) I'm an RN in CA. I'm currently working at a surgery center but my ultimate goal is to be a CNM.
    What would you guys recommend? Going for a BSN first and then heading towards my Master/CNM or going directly into a CNM program? If so, which University would you recommend? I need something online - my husband is in the military and we're moving a lot. I've heard George Washington university is pretty good, anyone experience with that? Any help and info would be greatly appreciated!

    Have you looked at Frontier Nursing University? There are multiple entry options for the nurse-midwifery program.

    It would probably be least expensive to complete a BSN, then apply to graduate programs.

    There are 6 schools that have midwifery online, some with campus visits required.
    1. East Caroline University - approximately $39,600 for the 2 year program - ranked #26
    2. Frontier Nursing University - $29,700 - 2 years - ranked #13
    3. Georgetown University - $79,000 - 18 months - ranked #19 - 3 visits required
    4. Philadelphia University - $45,694 - 2 years - ranked #29
    5. Stony Brook University - $34,290 - 2 years - ranked #24
    6. Univ. of Cincinnati - $41,289 - 2 years - ranked #35

    This list will significantly lower your search. Check out each of them and see what their requirements are, if they require a BSN already, or have RN - CNM programs. Some will require L&D experience, others just general nursing experience. I am just starting at Georgetown this week, so can't really comment on it too much yet. Good luck in deciding!
