    CNM Home Birth Laws

    I am starting back to school in January but am still working on my prerequisites.  Since there are a few differences in prerequisites for nursing school and the CPM program at Bastyr I feel like I need to choose between CNM and CPM so I don't waste money.  My husband is in the military so the laws on practice in both areas make me iffy.  I want to do homebirth but I would like the training of CNM, I also like that if we move somewhere that CPMs can't practice I can still get a job at a hospital.  I keep hearing how legaly becoming a CNM will back me into a corner in the hospital or hospital run birth center, and if it doesn't then it's still next to impossible to practice out of hospital.  Does anyone know of a website where I can verify those laws and find out what is expected of you if you want to practice out of hospital as a CNM?  Thanks in advance :)
