What accounts for the disparity in salary, according to Editor Elizabeth F. Hansen, depends on the area of the country in which an individual works. "Contributing factors such as an under-served areas, as you would find in major metropolitan and rural areas, may pay higher salary due to the high demand for this type of nursing specialty," she says.
"Your level of experience, level of education, employer and job description will also greatly impact your earning power," adds Hansen, who also points to the areas of responsibilities a nurse midwife usually takes on. These can include:
Nurse midwifery goes back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. In early America, this type of nurse played a major role in the home births that were common of the time. The American Association of Nursing Midwives was officially established in 1941, making this formal nursing field. Nurse midwives provide a wide range of womens health services. They can deliver babies, but they are also able to provide almost all aspects of prenatal, perinatal and postnatal care. This type of nurse is certified and is considered an advanced practice nurse.
