Midwifery teachers are charged with educating the next generation of scholarly authors, as well as excellent clinical midwives. Writing is a skill best developed through practice. Writing, reviewing, editing, revising and re-writing are all part of the process of learning to write well. During their course on complex antepartum conditions and midwifery care, students in the Nurse-Midwifery/WHNP program at Georgetown University choose a topic and develop a manuscript for publication. Students who have just completed this course will present a brief summary of the manuscript they prepared, the journal they selected for submission, and their learning about the publication process through this process. Professor Reedy will introduce this session and Dr. Cindy Farley will close with general advice and encouragement for students to engage in the publication process. Both Professor Reedy and Dr. Farley are accomplished authors and editors of midwifery articles and texts.
