Keiser University’s College of Nursing Master’s in Women’s Health and Midwifery degree explores the complexities of providing primary care to women throughout the birthing process and focuses on cultivating nurses who are sensitive to the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of the women in their care.

Students will gain the knowledge and skills to be women’s health and nurse-midwifery leaders who are empowered to generate, explore, and apply nursing and midwifery knowledge for evolving health care environments.

Residency and Clinicals

The Women’s Health and Midwifery program requires two residency courses where students will receive on-campus instruction over an intensive weekend for each residency course. Students will receive individual interaction, direction, and feedback from faculty members, opportunities to share experiences and insights with peers, and preparation for clinical work in practicum settings.

Students will also complete clinical experiences, referred to as midwifery care experiences. Students will practice foundational nursing skills and gradually integrate more advanced skills, while receiving individual and group supervision. Students will be responsible for selecting an appropriate site that can provide the types of activities, clients, and clinical supervision required.

The program prepares students for, but does not guarantee, certification by The American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB). Students are strongly encouraged to contact their state licensing board to determine the requirements needed in the state in which they are seeking certification prior to beginning the Master of Science in Women’s Health and Midwifery program.
