Applicants to the nurse-midwifery education program at East Carolina University are required to have a BSN and a minimum of one year of hospital nursing (preferably in labor & delivery). If you do not have your BSN there are a couple of options to earning that prior to applying to the program.
Graduates of the Nurse-Midwifery Program at East Carolina University earn a Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree and are then eligible to sit for the certificate exam offered by the American Midwifery Certification Board. Once they pass the board exam they are certified nurse-midwives.
A course in statistics with a grade of C or higher and basic computer skills with both applications software and the Internet are prerequisites.
Students in the Accelerated BSN option must complete all cognate requirements prior to beginning the program. Admission to the Accelerated BSN option does not guarantee entry into the nurse-midwifery education program.
