Talking Aspiring Certified Nurse Midwife in Austin TX

So, I am really passionate about becoming a midwife. I'm currently researching options of CPM vs CNM.
At first I felt like becoming a CPM was the most practical way to go, and very well may be, because I am a homeschooling mom to 3 small children. I checked out many long distance programs and became very impressed with Mercy In Action's long distance program.
Now I am considering going further and becoming a certified nurse midwife. I'm just not sure how that works out. I'm in Austin, Tx. There are no nurse-midwife programs available here that I've found.
So my question is this: In order to become a CNM would I need to go through a nursing program then midwife program or visa versa? I would really would love to enroll in Mercy In Action's long distance program if that was an option.
Also does anyone have any suggestions for an aspiring CNM?

If you want to become a nurse-midwife, you need to become a registered nurse first.
Getting a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN) would be your best option - for not only furthering your career, but also for finding employment as an RN.
