Midwifery Education Wrap Up

I hope this has been an interesting, and educational, month for you.

We talked about what you need to know to be a midwife, and how your life goals will dictate what type of midwifery education you should pursue.

We explored the role of midwifery regulation in determining the educational options you have.

We examined the pros and cons of training outside the United States and using distance learning programs.

We shared tricks for getting the most out of a preceptorship.

We discussed the reasons for certification by competency exam, and why this is the minimum standard.

As you move forward, I would love to hear the decisions you make for your midwifery education.
