How long do you have to go to school to be a midwife?
To become a midwife you must undergo a 32 month vocational training program, or an 18 month nurseconversion course (on top of the 32 month nurse training course). Thus midwives potentially could have had up to 5 years of total training. ===================================== In the UK, you can do a 3 year course to become a midwife (RM). It used to be that you had to be a registered nurse (RGN) first and then do an 18 month course to become a midwife. You no longer have to do this, although a Registered Nurse (Adult) can still do a conversion course to be dual registered as a Midwife.
