I wanted to let you all know about Frontier Nursing Service in Hyden, Kentucky in case you aren't familiar with them. They have an excellent reputation and their graduates are highly recruited from what I have learned. Even a midwife in Italy knew of them. Anyway, you are required to have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) prior to being accepted. After that, you can attend orientation in Hyden for five days. Levels 1 & 2 are completed at a distance, in your own home. Level 3 is two weeks of skills development that preapre you for clinical practice and is held in Hyden. Level 4 is pretty much clinical held in your own community with a CNM. This preceptorship lasts from 6-12 months. The great thing about this program is that you are able to stay in your own home and community for much of the training. You are eligible for the certification exam once you successfully complete the program. The Frontier School of Midwifery & Family Nursing phone number is (606) 672-2312 or you can find them on the web @ www.

I hope you find this helpful information.
