Talk to me about National College of Midwifery and Preceptors

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've been looking into midwifery programs for quite some time; I'm trying to find one that I can not only complete in a reasonable time frame, but afford!  I was very pleased to see NCM's price tag for academic prep, however, I have no idea how I'd manage to pay $500 a month for a preceptor... 

1. Is $500/month the going rate for a preceptor, if not, what is?

2. If $500/month is the going rate, how have you paid for that?

3. Pros and cons of NCM's program...

 

I was looking at AAMI, as I am a self-starter, good academic student, working full time, and not in a position to relocate to Bastyr (the closest brick-and-mortor midwifery school), but the more I read, the more I was looking for MEAC accredited and a little less... personality.  

 

Honest discussion and opinions are gratefully accepted!

 

Thanks!

I have no idea! But, asking the same questions, and came to the same conclusions about AAMI a little while ago too. I need to just call them and see what they say. Subbing so I can see what others have to say.

Have you looked into starting with Heart & Hands and going from there?
