This post-master's certificate program prepares the nurse who already has a graduate degree in nursing to become academically eligible for certification as a certified nurse midwife.
Graduates are prepared for independent management of low risk women during the antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum periods and for primary and gynecologic care of women throughout the life span. Graduates are prepared for collaborative management of women with risk factors. Program graduates are academically eligible to take the national certification examination of the American Midwifery Certification Board.
The post-master’s certificate curriculum is individually designed based on the course work documented on the transcript of the student’s master’s degree. The number of credits required for the completion of the certificate will vary.
The courses listed are required in the post-master’s curriculum plan unless these courses, or their acceptable equivalent, are documented on the master’s transcript. A minimum of 12 credits is required for the post-master’s certificate
