Admission requirements

According to East Carolina University, to be eligible for admission to the nurse-midwifery program, applicants must fulfill the following requirements:

  • BSN and a minimum of one year of hospital nursing (preferably in labor & delivery)
  • If you do not have your BSN there are a couple of options to earning that prior to applying to the program: 1) You may earn an Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) from a community college, then you may apply to the RN to BSN program at ECU while working in the hospital as a nurse. 2) If you have a Baccalaureate degree in something other than nursing you may apply to the Accelerated BSN program. This takes one year to complete. 3) If you are a registered nurse (RN), you must have worked in a hospital as a nurse for a minimum of one year prior to applying to the program. If you have your ADN you may start working on the one year of experience while attending the RN to BSN program.
