School of Nursing

Be Part of the Change

Maternal and neonatal outcomes in many areas of our country have reached abysmally poor levels. Negative maternal health outcomes, particularly for Black women and women of color, are disproportionately high.

The shortage of qualified obstetrical providers is a crisis projected to only worsen over time, particularly for southern states. The Nurse-Midwifery Program in Loyola’s School of Nursing is committed to addressing the disparities for pregnant women by increasing the number of Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNM).

Increasing the number of CNMs will enhance access to essential obstetric and gynecologic services for women in underserved communities.
