Survey of the role of nurse midwives in U.S. health care

This grant is the third in a series provided by RWJF since 1977 to help monitor the rapidly expanding potential of the nurse midwifery profession for helping to meet the nation's needs in maternity and newborn care. The last survey of the profession in 1982 provided encouraging evidence showing that nurse midwifery was emerging as a strong nursing specialty. The new survey, to be produced with funds from this grant, will provide detailed data on all certified nurse midwives in clinical practice. The actual survey costs will be financed by the Department of Health and Human Services Division of Maternal and Child Health. RWJF support will be limited to printing and distributing the survey report which will be issued in an edition of 5,000. It will receive wide distribution by the ACNM to the obstetrical community and to state and national policymakers concerned with the professional staffing needs of maternal and child health services.
