I know it's been a while since anyone has posted to this question, but here goes. I am very interested in the CNM/FNP track with the same reasoning given by a previous poster that it would be great to be able to treat both mommies and families and would also allow more flexibility in terms of job options as my kids are little. I was thinking of starting off in a women/family health practice and eventually as my kids get older transitioning to midwifery. I have a bachelor's degree in an unrelated to nursing subject (liberal arts/communications degree). I have a total of five prerequisites courses to fulfill before applying to the standard nursing school route. Is there another route someone might recommend on this site? I understand there are master's degree programs that require the GRE as pre-entrance exam, do you know if they require the HESI or some other Nursing Entrance Exam in addition? What would be the most direct route to accomplish the CNM/FNP? I initially thought I would first complete a BSN and then work for a masters degree, thinking that would be the wisest choice, however I am now considering going straight into a masters program. Any advice or people who have done CNM/FNP masters programs would be greatly appreciated.
