NYUCN receives $1 million HRSA grant to incorporate primary care into nurse-midwives' education
Date:10/28/2011

New York University College of Nursing (NYUCN) received a three -year, $1,002,318.00 grant from the Human Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) to research "Midwifery: Primary Care and Health Literacy Program Enhancement." Principal Investigator Ann Kurth notes that Nurse-Midwives state the largest barrier to incorporating primary care into practice is the lack of experience in clinical primary care during training. Enhancing the midwifery education program to include an expanded didactic and new specific primary care clinical component will eliminate that barrier for NYU College of Nursing Midwifery Program graduates and, potentially, will be a replicable model for midwifery programs that do not have a CNM/WHNP dual program.

"Certified Nurse Midwives play an essential role and are a crucial component in caring for medically underserved women and their families," said the Program Coordinator of the NYU Nurse Midwifery Program, , Julia Lange Kessler, MS, CM, RN, LC, RN, NM. "There is an increased need for Primary Care Providers (PCPs) for the underserved, and Nurse-Midwives are within their scope of practice to fill this need. The HRSA grant seeks to address this area of midwifery practice which has been underutilized."

This is a Nurse-Midwifery program enhancement grant that has three goals:

1) Expand the primary care component of the program so that midwifery student will be competent didactically and clinically to provide primary care to women (HP 2010/2020).

2) Add an innovative health literacy curriculum thread which will prepare midwifery students to promote development of patient health literacy competencies (HP 2010/2020).

3) Increase the enrollment, retention, and graduation of diverse students in the midwifery program to meet workforce demands (HP 2010/2020).

Expanding the role of midwives as primary care providers (PCPs), can help improve health outcomes in the lives of underserved an
