This is my first post here and I will admit I'm a bit nervous.
I am currently an undergrad working on a BSN. The ultimate goal was a Master's in Midwifery. Then the other day, the idea occurred to me that I could just skip the whole CNM route and do a direct-entry route for a CPM. The reason being, I don't really want to work in a hospital.
Anyway, I have scoured NARM and googled as much as I can and I still have questions. Do I *have* to attend a Midwifery school/program or can I simply complete an entry-level PEP as an apprentice?
This leads to more questions. If I can complete a PEP as an apprentice, how do I go about finding a preceptor willing to take on an entry-level student?
