Kimberly Trout - Program Director
Kimberly K. Trout, Ph.D., CNM, has practiced as a nurse midwife in rural and urban settings. She researches nutrition during prenatal care, especially for vulnerable populations at higher risk for obesity and diabetes.
The Nurse-Midwifery/ Women's Health Nurse Practitioner program is designed to prepare the graduate to manage a woman's normal obstetrical and gynecological needs during the childbearing years, to manage the care of the normal newborn, and to provide primary care to women throughout the lifespan.
