Nursing - Nurse Midwife education is based on an understanding of health sciences theory and clinical preparation that shapes knowledge, judgment, and skills deemed necessary to provide primary health care management to women and newborns. The University of Michigan School of Nursing Nurse Midwife program will prepare students for the American Midwifery Certification Board exam.


The Nursing - Nurse Midwife program begins with a solid foundation in primary care, then builds to include pregnancy care and childbirth followed by newborn care. Clinical experience is integral throughout the program and culminates in a ten week intensive clinical experience.


A range of opportunities are available to students for the intensive clinical experience, including the range of birth sites and international settings.

Midwifery practice at the University of Michigan as conducted by nurse-midwives (NMWs) is the independent management of women’s health care, focusing particularly on pregnancy, childbirth, the post-partum period, care of the newborn, and the family planning and gynecologic needs of women.
