I was wondering if anyone knows the best route to go if they would like to be a nursing midwife?

There's really only one route. Go to graduate school and earn a Master's or Doctorate in nurse-midwifery.

Im speaking to the US. I have no idea what the process is in the UK.

Seeing as you graduate next month then as mentioned you will have to top up. Not sure if the 18 month courses are still available
