Susan M. Jenkins, JD, is currently the general counsel for professional and practice issues of the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Ms. Jenkins is a graduate of Columbia University School of Law. She served as a staff attorney in the Bureau of Competition of the Federal Trade Commission from 1979–1981, and then entered private practice, specializing in antitrust and health care law. She has represented nurse-midwives and other nurses in specialized practice throughout her career in a variety of matters relating to professional rights and barriers to practice. In the mid-1980s, as counsel to a number of state associations of nurse anesthetists, she persuaded several physician-owned malpractice insurance companies to withdraw or rescind surcharges that had been imposed upon surgeons who work with certified registered nurse anesthetists. Two years ago, she represented the group practice, described in the article, that successfully challenged the imposition of surcharges upon OB/GYNs who work with nurse-midwives.
