I am going to become a CNM and would like to know the difficulty of the program at Baylors school of medicine? #registered-nurses #nurse-midwife #nurse #nursing #medicine #healthcare #college-bound #premed

I have not attended nor know someone who went to Baylor so I am not the good person to answer this question. Celso Huiso

Baylor is said to have a great program. That may well be true but be aware you will be dealing with a very openness centric faith based good old boy network. If that works for you then yeah it’ll be a great program for you. Myself personally I take a look at the way the school has handled student issues in the last 5-10 years, and to be honest you couldn’t pay me to enroll there if I were a young woman. I’d seek out a program with more diversity, and a university culture that doesn’t engage in covering up sexual peccadilloes, or overlook hazing.
Mind you, these are my personal opinions based on what I have personally read. They do not reflect the opinions of anyone else. I’m attaching a Wikipedia link and I would recommend that you take a look at the bibliography on this particular link and check out the reports your self.

Hi Sara, Thank you for taking the time to respond to this question and for bringing up information on how the school handles sexual assault allegations. Although this is an important discussion to have and worth considering when deciding on enrolling at the school, Hannah specifically asked about the CNM program. I'd love to hear any insight you might have on the program itself. Gurpreet Lally
I live in San Antonio, and my bf has been an RN for 37 years. I have 2 nephews who are anaesthesiologists, and a niece who is an nurse anesthetist… I socialize with a lot of medical personal. I do not know a single person who attended Baylor. Again, it’s a very homogenous campus, and heavily favored by Southern Baptist’s, so regardless how good the program is, individuals must consider whether the culture will be a good fit. Sara Cooper

Hi Hannah,

I did some digging on Baylor's CNM program and found some helpful information. According to the Successful Student website (https://successfulstudent.org/best-nurse-midwife-programs/), Baylor's program is in the top 20 midwife programs in the United States. Although this list is from 2017, it was updated in 2020 which tells me that they stand by their list.

In terms of the program itself, it requires you to have already completed your Bachelor's in nursing but doesn't require any experience to apply. I found this nifty little checklist that compares different CNM/Midwife programs in the country: http://www.midwife.org/acnm/files/ccLibraryFiles/Filename/000000006599/AdmissionRequirementsTable_v2.pdf

Hopefully, this information is helpful!
