A certified nurse-midwife is a health care professional who has an undergraduate degree in nursing along with an advanced practice master's degree in midwifery from a university accredited by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. In addition, a certified nurse-midwife must pass a national midwifery examination, as well as meet ongoing requirements for continuing education.
