Do any of you here know anything about National College of Midwifery? It's based in NM . It is MEAC approved yet, unless I'm reading their page wrong SO much less expensive than the other MEAC approved schools. I really resonate with their philosophy too. I guess I'm just confused as to how it could be so much less expensive than the other schools...?
It says at the site that you as a student, along with a preceptor, apply *together* to the school, but beyond the 5 grand to apply, it seems like the only other big expense is a payment plan they say you work out on your own w/your preceptor.
Does anyone here have any experience with this or idea how much you would pay your preceptor?? I know two assistant midwives -- one of them I know for positive
hasn't paid her preceptors, rather they on occassion have given her money gifts instead. And then the other one I know, I'm not sure, but I'd be really suprised if she were paying her preceptor.
If anyone here has been in the other-way-around situation, or knows someone who has, please tell me what the expectations are, money wise, when the assistant /student is the one paying the preceptor?
thanks so much **
