Program Details

The M.S. in Nurse-Midwifery is a rigorous, 2 year, 4-semester program with summers off. You'll be automatically registered for your courses each term and progress through the program with your cohort, a group of supportive colleagues.

  • Online—study at your own time and place
  • Three required 3 day weekend intensives during the program

In the program, you'll earn a Master of Science. In order to practice as a certified nurse-midwife, you'll need to take a certifying board examination similar to the NCLEX exam you took to become a registered nurse.


The program has been pre-accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME). For more information, contact them at:
