Since graduate education in nursing builds on the baccalaureate curriculum, nurse-midwifery students are expected to enter the program with
prerequisite course work. Specific areas that will be built upon, but not repeated at the graduate level include: basic anatomy, physiology and
pathophysiology; introductory pharmacology; basic growth and development; basic physical and psychosocial assessment; basic statistics;
interviewing and development of therapeutic relationships; and community health nursing. Students who seek admission without some of these
competencies must take personal responsibility for their acquisition. If this is necessary, the College of Nursing and the University of New
Mexico have course work, clinical opportunities and faculty available to assist students in this process prior to entering the program. The
curriculum consists of general core courses required for all graduate students and specialty courses as delineated
