Green Dot: CNMs are registered nurses who must have bachelor’s level background in nursing and/or science, 2 years nursing experience, and then an additional master’s degree in midwifery, at minimum. They can prescribe drugs including antibiotics, can install IUDs and provide well-woman care, and often work closely with a backup hospital–some have hospital privileges allowing for smooth transfer in case it is needed.
