Frequently Asked Questions


How do I get my CPR or NRP certification?

How do I get register for the CLEP exam?


Our school code is 6316

When are classes?

Classes will be held on Fridays and Saturdays each week.  Class times vary, but are usually between 9am and 6pm.  There will also be time spent at the clinical site, on a schedule each student negotiates with their Preceptor.  Students can expect to be at the clinical site 3-5 days per week.

Can I work while attending midwifery school?

Technically, yes, but it is exceptionally difficult.  Midwifery school is very challenging.  Although academic classes are only two days per week, students still need a fair amount of time for homework and studying. Students will likely have 1-3 days per week doing prenatal and postpartum visits, and may be on call for births 2-5 days per week.  Any job would need to be part-time and very flexible.

How will I find a Preceptor?

If you know a local midwife with whom you would like to precept, great! Ask them to contact us for a Preceptor application as soon as possible.  If you don’t have someone in mind, our Clinical Coordinator will help you find, interview, and negotiate with local Preceptors.
