Becoming a Midwife in Tennessee – TN

If you’re interested in gynecology and obstetrics but don’t want to go through the training necessary to become an OB-GYN, a career in midwifery may be right for you. Midwifery is also an excellent career option for registered nurses interested in women’s and infant health. And don’t let the job title fool you: men can be midwives too. Although only about 2% of midwives in the U.S. are men, the number of male midwives is growing steadily.


No matter what your background, becoming a midwife in Tennessee is a good choice: the Tennessee legislature has been very supportive of midwifery as a profession, asserting women’s right to choose the manner in which they give birth and recognizing the importance of providing a safe and effective range of options for doing so. Midwifery is therefore recognized as “a profession in its own right” and regulated accordingly. Nurse-midwives in Tennessee must be licensed as registered nurses, while all midwives must complete an educational program accredited by the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM), and receive certification from the North American Registry of Midwives. To renew their license, midwives must comply with Tennessee’s continuing education requirement by taking courses at a local educational institution or through organizations like the Tennessee Midwives Association.
