Nurse midwife shares her joy in caring for women – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
Nurse midwifery is just one of many roles nurses who specialize in OB/GYN can choose.
As of August 2017, according to the American Midwifery Certification Board, there were more than 11,000 certified nurse midwives practicing throughout the world. They are licensed, independent healthcare providers with prescriptive authority in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam and Puerto Rico.
Although they are well-known for assisting women in labor and delivery, nurse midwives provide many more healthcare services for women and their families.
Aiyana Davison, CNM, WHNP, RN, a certified nurse midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner, talked with Nurse.com about her own experiences, challenges she has faced when helping those who have limited access to healthcare and why she chose nurse midwifery as her career.
