Nurse-Midwifery Colleagues to Be Inducted as ACNM Fellows

MAY 3, 2018 - Jessica Brumley, PhD, CNM, a preceptor for Georgetown nurse-midwifery and women’s health nurse practitioner students, and Nichole “Nikki” Wardlaw, MSN, CNM, who is a clinical faculty advisor for the university’s program, will be inducted as fellows of the American College of Nurse-Midwives later this month.

“Fellowship in the American College of Nurse-Midwives is an honor bestowed upon those midwives whose demonstrated leadership, clinical excellence, outstanding scholarship, and professional achievement have merited special recognition both within and outside of the midwifery profession,” the organization says. “FACNM represents the commitment of the ACNM to honor our own.”

Wardlaw is a certified nurse-midwife for the United States Air Force at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. Additionally, she is the legislative co-chair for the college’s Virginia affiliate and serves on the ACNM program committee. She also holds a master’s degree in education from Pace University.

Brumley received her PhD from the University of South Florida (USF) and is an assistant professor and the director of the Division of Midwifery in the USF Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She has served in a variety of leadership roles for ACNM, including as chair of  the basic education section of the Division of Education and secretary of the Midwives of Color Committee. She is vice president of the executive board of the Florida affiliate.

“I offer my sincere congratulations to Dr. Brumley and Professor Wardlaw,” says Patricia Cloonan, PhD, RN, dean of the School of Nursing & Health Studies. “Earning fellowship in ACNM is a significant accomplishment. The number of fellows we have on our faculty helps highlight the quality of our program.”
