Nurse Midwifery

In cooperation with Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia, the Marshall University School of Nursing offers a Nurse Midwifery area of emphasis. Forty-four (44) hours of credit are required for the nurse midwifery area of emphasis.

The three components of the Master of Science in Nursing curriculum:

  • The core curriculum component is comprised of twelve (12) credit hours that focuses on knowledge and skills related to nursing and related theories, leadership, advanced nursing research, and issues.
  • The area of emphasis component, which includes the Nurse Midwifery area of emphasis (13 credits from Marshall and 19 from Shenandoah University) which provides an opportunity to develop competency as a nurse midwife.
  • The elective component (3 credits) for the NE and (6 credits) NA areas of emphasis allows students to choose one of four options: 1) thesis, 2) role development courses in teaching, or 3) elective courses related to the student’s area of interest, or 4) organizational dynamics or financial strategies in administration.

Upon successful completion of the program, Nurse Midwifery graduates are eligible to take the American Midwifery Certification Board Exam.

Shenandoah University’s Nurse-Midwifery Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME). Please visit the Shenandoah University Nurse-Midwifery website for specific accreditation information.
