ABSTRACT

Certified nurse-midwife (CNM) membership on boards that license and regulate practice is one avenue open to improve political awareness, make an impact on health care delivery systems, and increase the visibility of nurse-midwifery. This article reviews one CNM's experience with the executive branch of state government.
