The Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) supports midwives as independent providers of health care services for women and newborns. AWHONN supports a woman's right to choose and have access to a full range of providers and settings for pregnancy, birth, and women's health care. Many successful nurses choose to narrow their specialization over the course of their careers depending on their own particular passions and interests. Some people think of nursing as a one-track career when, in fact, the possibilities are many. Specializing can lead nurses toward some of the highest-paying nursing careers, including large earnings made possible by becoming a certified nurse. While some of the training is similar, a Certified Nurse-Midwife has more education and experience than a traditional midwife. As more and more families seek a natural, positive birth experience, the demand for Certified Nurse-Midwives will continue to grow. But beyond just deliveries, women are turning to CNMs for their overall health care needs. The American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) is the professional association that represents certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) and certified midwives (CMs) in the United States. ACNM sets the standard for excellence in midwifery education and practice in the United States and strengthens the capacity of midwives in developing countries.

While there are review courses and books available that claim to be useful when studying for the AMCB Certification Exam, AMCB does NOT endorse any of them. Candidates who opt to use these resources for exam preparation should be aware that they should not be used as content resources. The Frontier Nursing University’s Nurse-Midwifery Program supports the developing needs of Registered Nurses (RNs) in training to become a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM). Their role is critical in women’s health, prenatal, birth, and newborn care, as well as a range of other primary care services. The American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) is the national certifying body for candidates in nurse-midwifery and midwifery who have received their graduate level education in programs accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME).
