Understanding State Practice Environments

ACNM has developed two tools to help you understand how the states differ from each other with regard to the midwifery practice environment.

The first tool is a slide deck that contains a set of maps. The maps contain state-specific details such as: Where are your CNM/CM colleagues? How many are in each state? How many are ACNM members? How many CNMs/CMs are there compared to the state population? Where are the midwifery education programs located? How many births occur in each state? What percent are attended by CNMs/CMs? By CPMs? Where do CNM and CPM attended births typically occur? How many birth centers are in the state and how many of them are accredited? And much, much more!

In addition to the slide deck tool, ACNM has prepared a second tool to let you evaluate which is the best state for you. This is done with an Excel spreadsheet that contains a set of dynamic graphs. The graphs provide a score for each state based on how it compares to the median among states and how much you weight the importance of each factor taken into account. So you get a personalized ranking of the states based on what you care about.

By John Medina

What’s the single most important thing you can do during pregnancy? What does watching TV do to a child’s brain? What’s the best way to handle temper tantrums? Scientists know.

In his New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina showed us how our brains really work—and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules for Baby, he shares what the latest science says about how to raise smart and happy children from zero to five. This book is destined to revolutionize parenting. Just one of the surprises: The best way to get your children into the college of their choice? Teach them impulse control.

Brain Rules for Baby bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and dad, unravels how a child’s brain develops – and what you can do to optimize it.
