Online CNM-no BSN required?

  1. Is this even possible? I am a current LPN and am finishing up RN school next year. I would love to get a job in some capacity of OB and apply directly to an online WHNP or CNM program as I feel that is my true calling. I do have a previous non nursing Bachelors but really wanted to skip the BSN and go right into a program. Any clue on where I should look? Any help is appreciated.

    Yep,there is an online ASN-MSN program at Frontier School of Midwifery and family Nursing, check out There are others I have heard of such as U of Cinncinati, but pretty much all require 1 year of RN expereince. I know Frontier requires 1 year of ANY nursing experience, not just OB.

    Yes, after I posted, I looked around this board and discovered Frontier. Thanks for the info. I would absolutely try to get RN experience (hopefully L&D or MB)before going ahead with a program. I just know how difficult it can be to obtain an OB job as a new grad. I also googled and found Cinci"s program, but it looks as if it requires a BSN, Again, thanks for the info!

    Frontier is the place to check out! I too was an LPN and then did my RN online through Excelsior. I am in my second year at Frontier. Just like any program it has its good and bad points, but if it was not online I would not be able to do it. Good luck!!
