Frontier Nursing University is hosting an exciting digital summit dedicated to nurse-midwifery. We hope you’ll join us! During Today’s Nurse-Midwives: Creating a Collaborative Community of Care, we will be exploring how a variety of healthcare providers working together can provide the highest quality team care. All sessions are free and easy to join.
A true American Hero, Mary Breckinridge was the driving force behind rural healthcare in the United States, as well as the development of nurse-midwives in our country. When Mary Breckinridge established the Frontier Nursing Service (FNS) in Eastern Kentucky, she introduced the first nurse-midwives to the United States.
