How long does it take to become a midwife?
To become a CNM, otherwise known as a certified nurse midwife, one must earn an undergraduate degree in nursing (RN/BSN). After you complete your RN degree you must complete a… mandatory one year of nursing experience before appling for a midwifery master's degree program. Some excellent programs are NYU, Columbia, and Yale. Upon completion of the midwifery master's program you are now a Certified Nurse Midwife! Well done and congratulations!
I believe it's 6 years.
well if you don't have any qualifications than you will have to start with acourse at college called access to nursing for a year if full-time. search for a college that give …these course access to nursing. than when you pass you will than go on to university where you will spend three years of training until you a qualified. It depends on what kind of midwife you want to be. In the U.S., all 50 states license certified nurse-midwives. These midwives have master's degrees in nursing. A bachelor's in nursing usually takes 4 years, and the master's is usually another 2 years. Some states also license certified professional midwives, sometimes called direct-entry or lay midwives. Check your states licensing regulations if you prefer non-nurse midwifery. Some of these midwives go to schools, and the program length varies, and others apprentice with an experienced midwife, which is probably the longest route to becoming a midwife.
about 4 years in total
18 months if you are already a registered nurse or 3 years direct entry.

maths and English are subjects you need most but it varies onwhat type of law yougo for
You will need a minimum of 5 GCSE's at grade C and above (to include Maths, English and a Science) as well as 2 A level equivalents (recommend human biology, sociology, psycho…logy or health and social care for one of these) . However as competition for places among universities varies you will find many universities have more stringent criteria - I would phone your chosen universities to obtain the entry requirements. A midwife is normally the main contact during pregnancy as well as providing a pivotal role at birth and for postnatal care. By providing invaluable information, the Midwife will assist the expectant mother in making choices regarding the options and services that are available. A midwife's responsibilities and roles are wide ranging. A midwife undertakes clinical examinations, provides health information and is key in supporting the mother all the way through the pregnancy. Midwives carry out their work in a variety of health care settings. If they are based in a large hospital, they will work in the maternity unit. Other settings include dedicated birth centres, group practices and private maternity hospitals. The NHS employs the majority of midwives who practice in the UK. These midwives generally work in teams. An ever increasing number of midwives choose to work independently. Midwives generally work in teams and this requires them to work in shifts. So be prepared to work in day and night shifts. You may be also required to travel from hospital to hospital, be on-call and travel around the community to the new mother's residence. Your pay as a midwife as well as your working conditions is set by the NHS. As a newly qualified midwife your salary starts at just over £19,000 per annum. In addition, if you are on-call or working unsocial hours you can expect to earn more. An experienced midwife has the opportunity to earn in excess of £59,000. so good luck in the future guys & try your hardest!
