I was just curious what additional schooling you need to become a CNM (I think thats what it is called....) after having your RN?

The one I am looking into requires a BSN but not experience in OB (this is UCSF)
Q: I am in nursing school. Do I need labor and delivery experience before I can apply to midwifery school?
A: Experience as a labor and delivery nurse can be very helpful in developing an appreciation of the process of labor and birth. However a variety of experiences in women's health are valued and this experience is not an absolute requirement.
They do have a progrogram where if you have a BA/BS in another feild they will train you to be a nurse in about 1-1 1/2 years (I can not remember the length) and then you go on to the midwifery training.
