I am an RN and will complete my BSN this summer. I am living in the Houston area, and I wanted to see if there are any Texas RN's that have attended the Midwifery program at Frontier University! 

I would love to hear any feedback/advice, as I am currently working in Med/Surg and am pursuing the goal of becoming a CNM!

I would go to Stony Brook if I were you. They are very involved with their students and not politics of student loans and saving face. There are no politics with Stony Brook. From what I hear Frontier caters to L & D nurses the most...they say they don't but its not truthful The good reviews they have are only based on those who have graduated. I do my homework and as far as I know and have heard is that Frontier pumps out the students and rolls in those student loans but don't have the clincial sites they promise on their website. I think they promise like 10,000 but its not true. From what i hear a lot of the sites are no longer taking students or have expired contracts. I would heavily do some research before choosing a school. Ask around too and find out in your state  if there is an actual potential of your finding a job as a CNM. You might want to lean toward Women's Health unless your state has a great need for CNM's. I'm really sick of these diploma mills out there, its been a struggle for many students. 

Oh I want to add that another CNM friend recommended Texas Tech..I've heard great things about this and she's a military midwife working in New York
