I have a non-nursing degree and have been taking pre-requisites to apply for nursing school with the intention to become a CNM. I've been having trouble finding direct-entry/accelerated programs aside from UCSF, Vanderbilt & Michigan. A few programs listed on ACME seem out of date -- when I visit those schools there is no information about direct entry programs. 

To be clear, I understand that in order to become a CNM you need a nursing degree, however I know there are a few programs that include an accelerated nursing program and then a speciality in midwifery. I'm just having trouble finding all those programs online. Thanks in advance for your help!

The ACNM keeps an updated list of the accredited midwifery programs in the United States.  That would be a good place to start and take a deeper dive into their websites to see if they offer direct entry programs.  There are only a total of 37 accredited programs in the United States that will train you to be a CNM but not all of them will have a direct entry program.

For example- Columbia has a 15 months masters to get an RN (so you're not repeating your bachelors which is nice) and then the DNP midwifery is 2 years straight after that. Good luck with your search!
