Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
Celebrating 30+ years of helping women and their families our 5 CNM practice is seeking seasoned midwives to join our team. A full time position requiring 3 office days and one 24 hour call shift per week and 3 per diem positions ( 24 hour hospital call mainly weekends) are available. We are employed by the Johns Hopkins Health Systems in a private practice model located in Columbia Maryland. Our main office is in Columbia near Howard County General hospital where we deliver. We also have a smaller office in Eldersburg MD. We utilize electronic records at all locations. We practice in a collaborative model with 8 OB/GYNS who provide backup for labor and consultations in the office for OB and GYN patients.
We provide 24/7 coverage for our patients at a hospital that has staff and nursing who are supportive of us and our patients , especially VBAC’s and there is 24 hour anesthesia coverage and a level III NICU available. Our diverse population consists of all ages and socioeconomic levels as well as often non-English speaking patients for whom we have on site translation services.
In addition to high risk OB meetings, journal clubs and clinical meetings our midwives are encouraged to participate in hospital task forces groups to improve patient safety and outcomes. Located between Baltimore and Washington DC, Columbia is a planned community with excellent schools and facilities. It continues to remain as one of the highest ranked communities in the nation.
Our midwives are expected to function independently in a fast paced environment, both in the office and hospital. Therefore we prefer midwives with experience in both OB and GYN care, although we will consider new grads with labor and delivery experience as RN’s. Excellent benefits and competitive salaries are provided by Johns Hopkins Health System. Applications are being accepted online at
