Nurse-midwives are an essential part of maternal health, but there is often confusion about the role and who can do it. UNLV Nursing professors Jennifer Vanderlaan and Kate Woeber explain the differences between a nurse midwife and registered nurse; why midwives have had trouble with representation in Nevada; and common misconceptions about the position.
