Top Midwife Training Programs & Nurse Practitioner Master's Degrees Online

Midwifery degrees at the master’s level require a significant amount of preparatory education and experience. Candidates must be registered nurses (RNs) and need to hold a degree that has prepared them for graduate work – typically a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN). Once you meet these requirements you can explore accredited midwifery schools to find the one that is perfect for you, then start working on your nurse-midwifery or nurse practitioner master’s degree. These advanced midwife training programs usually take about two years of post-baccalaureate study to complete, after which you will hold the certified nurse-midwife (CNM) designation.

Certified Nurse-Midwife Training and Career Outlook

O*NET OnLine, an earnings and employment website, estimates that employment for nurse-midwives will grow from 14% to 22% through 2018. This classifies nurse-midwifery as a field with a bright outlook. Because of their considerable education and advanced skills, CNMs (graduates of nurse-midwife certification programs) typically have the best job prospects available in this profession. In fact, November 2011 data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services indicates that CNMs perform 94% of all midwife-attended births in the U.S.
