I'm currently in nursing school for my BSN but my ultimate goal is to become a CNM. My question to you is - what can I do as a student and RN to gain experience in midwifery? I'd love to be a birth assistant, but with school I have no extra time take more classes. Is there any type of work I could do? I'll be able to do my OB clinical with midwives - which I think is amazing and I couldn't be more excited.
Also, when I become an RN - do they work with midwives?
...also, I'd love to go directly into midwifery school. Thoughts?
Thanks so much, I look forward to your comments!
And, there is a CNM home birth practice in my area that does have an RN or 2 as birth assistants!
