I'm so attracted to Frontier but my fear of not being able to find a willing preceptor in my area (North Carolina) overrules my desire to go through them.
Thanks for the replies, I will email the program on monday.
"Unless the laws change (and hopefully they will) I will have to depend on hospitals for clinicals. Right now there is only one homebirth CNM in my state and AFAIK she does not take apprentices. Only one birth center too and I'm pretty sure they are overrun with requests. I'm OK with hospitals because I spent several years as a homebirth apprentice and I continue to attend births as a DEM... and will continue to until the law changes."
What law has to change? Making CPMs legal? Can CPMs supervise the clinicals of CNM students? There are actually 4 CNMs with homebirth practice in the state. I am curious how that attending births as a DEM and being a homebirth apprentice makes you OK with hospitals? Were you able to attend births in the hospital as a DEM?
