I am a third semester ADN student right now, and I'm feeling the crunch to start planning what to do after graduation. I would like to pursue CNM, but CNM's are not allowed to deliver in our local hospital. Does anyone have any idea if an NP's scope would cover L&D, and if my chances would be greater of getting hospital privelges with an NP? Our local ED had an NP as director, so I know the hospital is pretty accepting of that scope of practice.
Thanks for any info!
