Masters in Nurse Midwife

Students that pursue a Master's in Nurse Midwife attend classes in topics such as obstetrics, gynecology, reproductive services, newborn assessment, primary care, and postpartum care. Most programs come with a two-year course of classes and clinical work before the student becomes certified. Most students entered the training from a nursing background. They seek additional certification in order to work exclusively in the world of midwifery. Many states require special certification for those that want to specialize in this area. Many certification courses mix meeting state requirements with training classes. Many graduate with certification in hand.

Obtaining their degree online offers great choices for individuals in all areas of life. Many individuals choose to go back to college later in life while other people get their college degree right after leaving high school. For those people that desire to obtain an education while working and balancing family life, obtaining an online degree is the best option to go. Nurse Midwife Master’s Programs give the student the same professional chances as those obtained in a traditional college setting. Tuition costs are often less. Student satisfaction is normally much higher. Students can complete classroom assignments and activities as they have time. That means that they can work their class work schedule around their professional and family lives.

Most graduates in this area already hold certification as a registered nurse. By adding this specialization, these nurses can specialize in working with pregnant women. Some nurse midwife's go on to private practice and work with pregnant women alongside their obstetrician. Others work in hospitals and with obstetrician's offices. Coming right out of school, most students can begin making somewhere around $40,000 a year. In some locations, however, that amount can be higher. Nurse midwives also make additional money helping with newborn care and prenatal care.
