Nurse-Midwifery (M.S.)

The Master of Science in Nurse-Midwifery program is intended to prepare students to take the American Midwifery Certification Board Examination to become a Certified Nurse Midwife. This program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and the Accrediation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME).  It is also approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing.

Per the U.S. Department of Education Regulation 34 CFR 668.43 (a) (5) (v), we have determined that our curriculum meets educational requirements for becoming licensed as a Nurse-Midwife in Minnesota. Please refer to the full list of determinations (Link TBD) regarding all fifty states as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands for anyone wishing to become a U.S. Nurse-Midwife.

Questions about licensure? 

Be sure to check with the appropriate licensing agency in your state to verify requirements prior to beginning any course of study. Check requirements regularly as they may change.  Additional information about Nurse-Midwifery licensure may also be found through organizations such as the Midwives Alliance of North America.
