Understanding State Practice Environments
ACNM has developed two tools to help you understand how the states differ from each other with regard to the midwifery practice environment.
The first tool is a slide deck that contains a set of maps. The maps contain state-specific details such as: Where are your CNM/CM colleagues? How many are in each state? How many are ACNM members? How many CNMs/CMs are there compared to the state population? Where are the midwifery education programs located? How many births occur in each state? What percent are attended by CNMs/CMs? By CPMs? Where do CNM and CPM attended births typically occur? How many birth centers are in the state and how many of them are accredited? And much, much more!
In addition to the slide deck tool, ACNM has prepared a second tool to let you evaluate which is the best state for you. This is done with an Excel spreadsheet that contains a set of dynamic graphs. The graphs provide a score for each state based on how it compares to the median among states and how much you weight the importance of each factor taken into account. So you get a personalized ranking of the states based on what you care about.
