Nevada



Direct entry midwifery is an unregulated practice in Nevada.

The number of direct entry midwives in Nevada is unknown, but midwives practice openly in many of the more heavily populated areas of the state. Direct entry midwives are generally treated respectfully by government and medical agencies and personnel. Ther are no free-standing birth centers or midwifery schools in the state. All direct entry midwives in Nevada have homebirth practices. All CNMs practice in the hospital setting.
