Hello, I am starting my freshman year of college this fall, YAY! My dream has always been to become a Nurse Midwife, or Certified Nurse Midwife, (I haven't thought too much into specifics yet. I really enjoy the idea of pregnancy and childbirth, I feel I was put on Earth for this exact reason. My question is: Is there any Nurse-Midwives out there? How is the field, any tips? Is it hard finding a school, let alone a job? I'm currently in Houston, Texas USA, and I wouldn't really want to move to another state just to have a job. Is this a route that you think I should pursue, or will it die out?

Thank you, 

P.S.: Feel free to add anything else you feel I should know 🙂

Lots of schools to choose from, and I'm sure a large metro area such as Houston would provide ample opportunity for employment.

US News has a rank list of nurse midwifery program:

Two well respected online programs I'm aware of that have periodic required on campus intensives where cohorts of students come together with faculty for learning are Frontier University, KY and  Midwifery Institute at Jefferson University, Phila. PA.

US needs more midwives as maternity rates abysmal compared to other countries!  Best wishes in your nursing journey.
