What’s the difference between a CNM and a CM?
It is important to note that a certified nurse-midwife is different than a certified midwife (CM). A CNM is a registered nurse who graduates from a nurse-midwifery program, while a certified midwife is not a registered nurse. Instead, CMs have a healthcare-related degree or educational background and they graduate from a midwifery program. Both CNMs and CMs take the same certification exam to practice but their professional designations are different.
