Midwifery Education Programs
Midwifery education programs are post-baccalaureate programs that provide all the essential components of the midwifery curriculum as defined by the ACME document Knowledge, Skills, and Behaviors Prerequisite to Midwifery Clinical Coursework and the ACNM document Core Competencies for Basic Midwifery Practice. Midwifery education programs must also have the essential elements for program implementation as defined in the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME) Criteria for Accreditation documents. They must also be incorporated into programs of professional studies which grant academic degrees at master or doctoral levels. The information contained here was provided by the individual programs and is intended as a general overview. For additional information, contact the program(s) directly. While the ACNM does serve as resource for prospective nurse-midwifery and midwifery students, it does not provide career counseling services.
