Frontier Midwifery School

    Has anyone ever attended this school or know of anyone who has. What kind of reputation does it have? After reading their website I was very interested in their "community focus" and combined CNM/WHNP program. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    EXCELLENT school!! We have had several students from there and a couple of our long-standing CNM's went to school there and loved it! It is connected with Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland which is also an excellent university. I would highly recommend it, also because to go there you have to have already had nursing experience. That, in my book, is very important.

    I hope you go!

    A WONDERFUL program. I have a friend who went there. She had no nursing experience except for nursing school (and we all know how much you learn in school :chuckle ) She turned into a fabulous midwife (she delivered my first baby at home). She told me she was glad she didn't have very much real world experience in nursing because many of the people in the program were stuck in the "nurse" role. Midwifery is a totally different animal. Anyway, just my two cents.

    Well perhaps, but CNMs, at least, ARE nurses first and always. Being "stuck" in nurse mode is not always a bad thing,either.

    Is the master's now regionally accreditated? I would love to go there and not have to go for 3 weeks to Case. This is the school that is at he top of my list. Love the fact that is community based. Just like in days gone by.

    Does anyone know how hard it is to get in? Someone told me there was a waiting list and that I should apply now if I want to go in the next few years even if I don't quite have all my ducks in a row yet. Any ideas?

    perhaps a good idea is to contact the school itself , alaska. I wish you luck and success on your way to becoming a midwife.
