How long do you go to college to be a Midwife?

I'm wanting to get advice from an actual Midwife because they went through the experience in college to become one.

Nikki’s Answer

In the US, you will need to obtain a bachelors degree in nursing and then obtain a masters degree in nursing with a specialty in midwifery.

The number of years it will take you varies by the type of school you attend.

Some nurses decide to get an associates degree in nursing (approximately 2 years), get licensed and work as a nurse while completing the requirements for a bachelors degree (1-2 years).
Others decide to go straight for a bachelors degree (4 years).

It is recommended you work as a nurse in women's health (labor and delivery or gynocology) before seeking your masters degree as a nurse midwife (2-3 years) to ensure you have a strong foundation of concepts in women's health that will be taught in much more depth on your way to becoming a midwife.

These time estimates assume you are enrolled in school full time.
