Students work with nurse-midwifery faculty who are national and international leaders shaping the future of health care for women and children. Students in our program are mentored as a future leader in our profession, capable of making ongoing, positive change through health policy, clinical practice and the evaluation and application of research to care
The Office of Clinical Placement works with the program faculty to match each student with clinical experiences in office and hospital practice sites. The program offers the opportunity to work with a variety of vulnerable, underserved, and multicultural populations, both in the Atlanta community and within and beyond the state. Students may receive training in a variety of sites including public health clinics, private nurse-midwifery and medical offices, hospitals, birth centers, nonprofit community health clinics, and migrant health care sites.
Graduates have opportunities for advanced nursing practice in community and hospital-based midwifery services and in primary care and/or women’s health care settings. Other career options are available in health care services research, nursing education, health care consulting, and community health education.
Upon completion of this full-time four-semester program, graduates are eligible to take the certification examination of the American Midwifery Certification Board. Students can also pursue the nurse-midwifery program part-time.
