School Paper, Midwifery

  1. 0
    Hi, I'm in a R.N. program, aiming toward being a nurse-midwife. In
    English Comp, we have to write a paper related to our major, which for
    me can be anything that has to do with healthcare. I've decided to do
    my paper on nurse-midwifery. I'll probably narrow the topic down a
    bit, since nurse-midwifery as a whole could be too extensive to
    address in a 6-10 page paper. I'm thinking of trying to do the paper
    on the pro's/con's of using a nurse-midwife. Do any of you
    have any books, articles, or websites you would reccommend I check
    out?

    Thanks,
    Noel Christine

    Thanks Siri. I just read through that thread, and while there may be some info that'll give me ideas, right now I'm not wanting to do the paper on homebirths. Many CNM's deliver in hospitals or in a birth center.

    Come on nurse-midwives, I know you're out there!

    Try www.midwife.org, the ACNM web site. They define what a nurse midwife and a non nurse midwife and you can get some info on your specific state.

    Another idea I had was the history of nurse-midwifery. I'll meet with my instructor today, so I'll see what he thinks of my ideas.

    Would any of the nurse-midwives here agree to private, via e-mail interview? If you're currently a CNM you'd be considered an "expert" in your field via the Eng Comp standards and would be a great source.
