  3. Employment Contract...Standard?
    I have a written offer letter but no contract at my job. In my case it's because they don't consider NP's to be on par with the physician staff so it doesn't occur to them. I asked for one and was...

  6. Which states are CNMs permitted to do homebirths?
    Some states require collaboration and some don't. It seems safer to require this but it really doesn't accomplish a lot other than restrict practice. My state law requires a physician in the state,...

  8. Looking for a good CNM school in Georgia State
    Emory is your only regular option. Very pricy but seems to be a great program. Otherwise the distance programs- Frontier, Case Western, maybe some others. I don't know if it is still there, but I...

    It does depend on the state- some states including the one where I practice, prohibit anyone but physicians from providing abortion services. Other states, like where I was previously, allow...

  14. pediatric Nurse Midwife
    I like the FNP/CNM model (which was not offered at my school, I am CNM only). I'm not sure about the usefulness of the CNM/PNP model though. I am sure there are some places it would work well or...

    You could, in theory, work there, but I doubt many people go to midwifery school with that aim. Most midwives want to deliver babies or at least work in the OB field. It is within the scope of...

  21. Would keeping my own birth book be a HIPAA violation?
    I am a CNM and I keep a birth log. Pretty much Same info as you listed. It's important for a provider to know/track their stats. It isn't a HIPAA violation, you aren't divulging the information to...
