Nurse-Midwifery

The nurse-midwifery specialty track prepares graduates for challenging careers as Certified Nurse-Midwives. Coursework, extensive precepted clinical experience and utilization of evidence-based practice allow our students to acquire the knowledge, values and skills necessary for certification as nurse-midwives by the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB).

The nurse-midwifery specialty track at The Ohio State University College of Nursing is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME), 8403 Colesville Road, Suite 1550, Silver Spring, MD 20910-6374; For information about accreditation please contact ACME directly. 240-485-1802acme@acnm.orgmidwife.org/acme.

At the heart of our master’s program are active, collaborative relationships between the College of Nursing faculty and community-based primary care agencies as well as The Ohio State University Medical Center’s teaching hospitals. As part of the country’s most comprehensive health sciences center, our students benefit from access to cutting-edge research and knowledge, a diverse selection of elective courses and interdisciplinary collaboration among healthcare professionals.

Our central location, class schedules and preceptors throughout Ohio accommodate both part-time and full-time students. The certification pass rates for the American Midwifery Certification Board examination includes both full and part-time students. For the last 5 graduating classes 2014-2018, the first-time pass rate is 85% percent, 100% passed on retake. Overall pass rate was 100%. Our certification rate goal is 85%. The 2019 certification rate was 100%.

Specialty Content and Clinical Experience

Our specialty provides precepted clinical experience in a wide variety of geographic locations and clinical sites throughout Ohio. Students may be required to travel up to three hours with the State of Ohio to complete the clinical requirement. All travel is at the expense of the student. Clinical experience at a minimum of 16 to 32 hours per week throughout the clinical sequence provides students with opportunities to achieve the competencies of the specialty. Clinical seminars are used to augment the modular content of the clinical courses. In addition, clinical skills laboratories, presentations by faculty on selected topics, student-led case studies and occasional guest speakers are included in the curriculum. Student performance is evaluated through a variety of methods, including scholarly papers, in-class and take-home quizzes, and examinations, worksheets, and clinical practice.

All nurse-midwifery students are required to publicly present at an in-state professional conference during their last clinical year. This may require travel expenses.
