Air Force Nurse-Midwifery Program?

  1. I am a student getting my RN/BSN and would like to know if anyone has information on the Air Force Nurse-Midwifery Program. I read on about.com the following:

    AFSC 46G1, Entry Nurse-Midwife
    For entry into this specialty, graduation from an accredited school of nursing program and enrollment in an Air Force-sponsored graduate level Nurse-Midwifery program.

    Does this mean that I can join the Air Force as a Entry level Nurse Midwife and go into a Masters program that they pay for? Anyone have more info on this?

    [font=Arial Black]Hi, you might want to go to the Airforces website and search for the Midwifery Program? Or you may want to contact an Airforce Recruiter or if they have an information line you can call and receive information by mail maybe. Hope this helps and hope you find what your looking for.

    Basically NPs make exactly the same as any other nurse in the AF of the same rank and years of service. There is also a small bonus for NPs if I remember correctly. The bonus isn't much...I think 3-5K if remember right.

    No it means that once you are accepted into an AF approved Nurse Midwife program and you have joined the AF then you are considered 46G1.

    The AF will pay for for an experienced AF OB nurse to go back to school, but you have to meet time in service/time on station requirements along with the normal pre-reqs required for entry into midwifery school.
