Im new to the forum, so sorry if it has been asked before..I did a bit of browsing and saw some stuf, but not a lot!
I am not a midwife, but am currently a post BA ADN nursing student. Hubby and I(and 4 kids) live in Louisiana and I would like to eventually become a CNM. I graduate May 2013 and I am hoping I will get a job in L&D straight out of school. I would like to work at least 2 years and then hubby and I have discussed leaving the state of Louisiana to relocate in an area that is more CNM friendly....There is a serious lack of CNM's here, and as far as I know, there are none in North Louisiana, so I would not have a preceptor for clinicals.
So long, story short, we are discussing areas we would like to relocate to; and in order to do that, need a list of areas where CNM's are being recognized and utilized..
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
