The U.S. Department of Labor predicts employment for all registered nurses to grow much faster than the average through 2024, and this should be especially true for specialists. As certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) and Certified Midwives (CMs) gain a reputation as highly trained and compassionate professionals, they will become an integral part of the health care community. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, in 2014 there were 332,107 births attended by CNMs and CMs. CNMs and CMs attended 91.3 perent of all midwife-attended births that year.¬†Currently, there are more positions than there are nurse-midwives to fill them.
