Interview With Teresa Marsico, CNM, MEd, FACNM ACNM President 1993–1995

What should be the goals of the profession in the next 50 years?

Midwifery needs to establish its autonomy and be recognized as an independent profession in the U.S.A. To achieve this, we need to direct our efforts toward changing legislation and improving reimbursement so midwifery can advance and be empowered as a distinct profession from that of nursing. More direct entry education programs should be supported and developed in addition to nurse-midwifery education programs. Greater employment opportunities for all midwives must be sought so more women will have access to a quality midwifery model of care in the next 50 years and beyond.
