New student, Medical Assistant! What is the BEST path to take to be a midwife?

I'm 32yrs old and a mother of 2 boys! I've wanted to help deliver babies since I can remember. I have witnessed two babies to friends and one to my sister be born. It was AMAZING!!! I've been out of Hight School for 16yrs now. So I feel very lost when it comes to the best choices regarding school. I have many friends that are nurses but not in the same path. Asking them for advise really only confused me more. I don't want to make the wrong choices when it comes to school and what classes to take. What is my best path, with the goal of being a midwife or labor and delivery nurse? #doctors #nurse-midwife #midwifery

How to decide which branch of nursing I should do?

Hello, I am an aspiring nurse major. I am currently a senior in high school and am curious about the various types of nursing degrees and jobs I could possibly go into. I love helping people, and my passion in life is to be able to give back to the world in the caring for people. I would also like to make a good amount of income, as I could like to be financially stable as well as be able to give back to my parents. I enjoy working with people but professionally with peers, mostly by myself but can handle groups and teams. I enjoy problem-solving and independence and don't mind working long hours. What could be the fitting nursing career for me? #nursing #nurse #healthcare #registered-nurses #nurse-practitioner #nurse-midwife

Once you chose to be in this field, were there times that you wanted to turn back? Since nursing is usually a field that you can't take back

If I go to college not knowing what I want to do and I might want to do nursing I don't want to be stuck in a pothole. #nursing #registered-nurses #nurse-practitioner #nursing-education #nurse-midwife

How do you determine what type of nurse you should be?

I'm really interested in looking more into what it's like to be a nurse and the education and training needed to be one. I was just curious about how someone decides what nurse to be since there are so many different kinds or positions that you can take. Do you just get your bachelor's and apply anywhere or do you need any further training based on what you choose? Any information would be a great help. #medicine #nursing #nurse #nurse-practitioner #hospital #neonatal #nurse-midwife
