  2. Doula Certification/Wanting to be a Midwife

  4. Frontier or PhillyU
    Phila U seems like a strong program from what I know of the curriculum. But, I have heard of students having set backs with their progression through the program. A good question to ask faculty would...

  5. Frontier or PhillyU
    I know a handful of Phila U students-- based on what I have heard, I do NOT recommend PhilaU. I've heard great things about Frontier, but don't know anyone personally. With both programs though, you...

  6. Question from a NICU nurse about WHNP
    I agree that it really depends on where you are located. But I have noticed a lot more "office only" CNM positions lately (nationally). There are practices that are following patient demand for...

  8. Transitioning from WHNP to CNM?
    It makes sense if the job you are going after is only looking for a WHNP for whatever reason (i.e. politics, malpractice insurance). This matters more in large institutions where the "job...

  10. CNM recommended GPA
    3.47 is a solid and competitive GPA. I wouldn't worry about it. Just make sure the rest of the application is strong especially your essays.

  11. L & D experience and CNM -- opinions!
    You don't need L&D experience unless your program requires it. L&D experience does help but it's not essential. Any nursing experience will help but any inpatient experience is best. More...

  12. Aspiring CNM Pre-Nursing Student: BSN route or non-nursing degree to MN/CNM route?
