 Masters program in nurse-midwifery

Hi!  I'm new to this group and interested in any information related to
schools that offer a masters program in nurse-midwifery.  I am an RNC in
in-pt. obstetrics with several years experience in labor and delivery.  I
have always wanted to go into nurse-midwifery, but I live in the Reno, NV
area and there are no programs locally.  It would be very difficult to
relocate my family of 8 for the amount of time it would take to get
through school, (I would like to return here to practice).  If anyone has
any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them.  I posted this on, but recieved no responses.  Thanks for your help.  Linda

Hi Linda-
I too felt the call to midwifery and a more humanistic role
than the one I had as a labor and delivery nurse. I chose to
obtain my education from the Frontier School of Nursing's
Community Nurse-midwifery Education Program (CNEP). This program
allows me to remain in my community while recieving my education.
The program is affiliated with Case Western and I will have a MSN
when I graduate. If you are interested, the phone no. for CNEP is
(606) 672- 2312. The regional coordinator for Nevada is Mimi Mateo,
CNM, MSN; the school can probably direct you to students in your
state who are familiar with the program. Good luck!

I am also new to this group. I am an IBCLC and RNC with all of my
experience (12 years) being in a Level III NICU. I have always been
interested in women`s health and childbirth but have not been directly
involved with parient care in these areas. I am thinking about going back
to school for my MSN as a Women`s Health NP or Midwife. This would be on a
parttime basis. I realize I need more experience much and where do I
start? Unfortunately the hospitals in the area are cutting back so jobs
are pretty scarce in Maternal/Women`s Health. Any suggestions? What about
clinics and birthing centers? Any recommendations on schools in the
Baltimore/Washington area. Thanks, Lisa

Lisa, I obtained my BSN from UMBC, and several of my classmates have
gone on to the NP program at UMAB. There are tracks in womens' health,
neonatal health, acute care, you name it. As for experience, you're
right, the job market is tight in the area. Birth centers, if they are
well thought out, require experience/certification in the field; the
resources are not as obvious as in the hospital. Many of my
midwifery classmates are childbirth educators, lactation consultants,    
etc; the labor and delivery experience is valuable, though. Check with  
practices in the area that have midwives (ACNM has a directory available
as well as a BBS number) for their opinions and perspectives; you will  
find a community eager to help. I began my journey towards midwifery 5
years ago, and am finally doing what I truly want to do, but I got where  
I am with the support of my family (very important if you're considering
school!) and midwives who truly care about their profession.

There is a program called CNEP or community based nurse education program
where you can get your masters through Case Western and midwifery
certificate through the Frontier School of Nurse midwifery.   It is a long
distance learning program.  I just finished.  Write if you want more info.

The national ACNM convention is taking place beginning June 14th at Palm
Springs, CA.  Perhaps you'd like to attend since it probably isn't too far
from your location.  There will LOTS of midwives there who can give you
additional information.
