FNU Celebrates National Midwifery Week

It’s finally that time of the year again! Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is excited to be celebrating National Midwifery Week (October 2-8, 2016). Whether you are a midwife, know a midwife, or want to know more about midwifery, this week is for you. National Midwifery Week was created by the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) to celebrate midwives and midwife-led care.


Of course, this is a monumental week for the family and friends of FNU. We have filled the week with all sorts of activities and events to celebrate the occasion. Here’s just two ways you can get involved:

  • Tune in to our 2016 Digital Summit. The "Let Our Stories Move You to Answer the Call" virtual event is going on right now! Explore the experiences and stories of Certified Nurse-Midwives who are passionate leaders committed to better care for women and families. Go here for more information.

  • Share YOUR story. As part of our Digital Summit, we are looking for stories about Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNM). Are you a CNM? Is your health care provider a CNM? What compelling stories do you have about your experience? We want to hear them and share them with our Frontier Nursing University community as part of our celebration! Find out how here.


FNU is passionate about educating nurse-midwives to serve women and families in all communities, especially rural and underserved areas.
