A friend and I were discussing this lately..
Are there jobs out there for new CNMs? Are the graduate programs graduating more midwives than there are positions available for?
What do you think? Would a fresh-out-of-school CNM have a difficult time finding employment?
I think the midwifery model of care is above par compared to the medical model, but it seems that obstetricians still vastly outnumber CNMs in practice.... which is what spurred this thought.
