MSN Nurse-Midwifery

Become a Nurse-Midwife

Certified nurse-midwives are essential to women’s health. As a licensed independent health care professional, you will specialize in proving care to women across their lifespan. You will provide prenatal care, attend births, care for newborns, provide reproductive care, offer counseling, and have full prescriptive authority. 

Midwives partner with women and families, emphasizing compassion and skillful communication.  Nurse-midwives provide evidence-based individualized care to ensure healthy outcomes. The World Health Organization recommends that midwives be the principal providers for pregnant women.
