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.
