    The role of CNMs in abortion care

    Hello I am wondering if there is any programs that educate/train midwives in abortion care. There are currently six states which allow NPs to perform procedures. I am wondering if abortion care is included within the midwifery curriculum of any school. I am posting for strictly educational and healthcare inquiries into the field. Please refrain from responding if you have any sort of moral judgment on this particular topic.

    The role of CNMs in abortion care

    Actually, i currently work at Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette. CNMs do perform surgical and medical abortions. It depends on the state

    Applying to accelerated CNM programs

    Hello! I am curious as to how competitive i would be for some of the accelerated CNM programs. Im mainly thinking of OHSU, Yale, Columbia, U of Penn, and perhaps UCSF. I have a undergraduate degree in Politics and Womens studies. I graduated with a 3.6 GPA. I am currently working at Planned Parenthood and training to become a doula. I guess my main question, am i even competitive for these programs? Should i look at taking a different route.
