A career in midwifery requires many years of education and training, but the personal and professional rewards of working as a midwife are well worth the effort. By enrolling in a midwifery school in Missouri, you can become a professional dedicated to women’s health and natural, comfortable childbirth.
To begin seeking employment as a midwife, you need to take a variety of different courses related to midwifery. You can start with an undergraduate degree, preferably in nursing, and then go on to obtain nursing registration. Worth noting is the fact that practicing as a midwife in Missouri without registered nurse status is not permissible. Once registered; however, you can begin completing your nurse-midwifery program through a college or university in Missouri. This will be a master degree program and should consist of about 2 years of study.
If you feel like personal obligations, or even work obligations, may hold you back from pursuing a degree in midwifery, think again. Most schools in Missouri are now offering midwifery programs which can be completed online. Not only does this provide you with more flexibility over your education, it also enables more students to participate in degree programs that they otherwise would not have time to complete.
