Diploma in General Nursing & Midwifery (GNM)

NIMT Hospital, Greater Noida

3 Years

Undergraduate Diploma

One of the most fulfilling and lucrative nursing specialties to consider pursuing is that of a General Nurse Midwife. If you're someone with a strong interest in women's gynecological health, prenatal and postnatal care, becoming a GNM is a perfect path. Because you'll be considered an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), there is a specific educational path you must take in order to begin your career.

Nurse midwives (GNMs) do more than just deliver babies. GNMs provide health care and wellness care to women, which may include family planning, gynecological checkups, and prenatal care. Although their approach is somewhat different, GNMs in many ways offer similar care to that of an OB/GYN doctor.  

Perhaps their most important job, however, is helping mothers birth their babies safely and naturally. They help patients manage their labor and monitor both the moms and babies during the delivery to ensure safety. In some cases, they work under the supervision or in collaboration with physicians during C-section births.

GNMs are Registered Nurse and Registered Midwife and receive registration number on successful completion of the course from state and Indian nursing council.
