Midwifery Schools in the US

  1. I am a recent graduate of Eastern Michigan University school of nursing. I plan on going to graduate school to become a nurse midwife. I know that the University of Michigan has a midwifery school. Can anyone tell me of any other good midwifery schools in the US? I'm just trying to give myself more options. Thanks everyone!:angel2:

    I am new to this site and fell into it looking up nursing schools. I want to become a CNM and I'm really unsure where to begin. I was under the impression that I have to start with getting my BSN in Nursing first. How did you start?

    The only school that I have found with a Midwifery Program so far is University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. How this helps.

    Thanks so much for any info you can help me with.

    Kim,

    Welcome to the site!

    Normally you do need to have a BSN first unless you have a BA or BS in another subject then you can do a bridge program which would allow you to earn your BSN/MSN straight through. It usually takes 3 years. There are also RN to MSN programs for registered nurses with a diploma or associates degree. I'm not sure if there are any midwifery programs with this option though.

    SUNY-Stony Brook in New York offers the midwifery program via distance learning. I don't really know anything about it though, but I'm sure there's someone on this board who may have some useful info for you.

    Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee offers this program as does The University of Kentucky in Lexington,and the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. There are others out there too! Frontier Nursing in Hyden, Kentucky offers a distance education for CNM. (See my previous post on this board regarding Frontier for info.)

    Hope this little bit of info helps!

    The University of Indianapolis will be starting their first-ever CNM program this fall.
