FNU Sponsors “Call the Midwife” in Select Areas
HYDEN, KENTUCKY – September 2012: Frontier Nursing University is excited to announce that we will be an underwriter in select U.S. markets for the smash British hit TV series, "Call the Midwife," which will air on PBS this fall. FNU is underwriting the show in the state of Kentucky and in several Florida markets. "Call the Midwife" is a moving portrait of the colorful world of midwifery and family life in 1950s East London. It will feature a young nurse-midwife working alongside an Order of Nuns where their primary goal is to help bring safe childbirth to women in the area.
FNU is proud to be an underwriter for a show that portrays midwives in a positive light. With the longest continually-operating and the largest nurse-midwifery program in the country, being associated with “Call the Midwife” was a natural fit for the University. Exposure is especially significant in FNU’s home state of Kentucky and in Florida, one of the top states for recruiting nurse-midwifery students.
The “Call the Midwife” series will premiere at 8 p.m. ET on Sept. 30. Look for spots about Frontier Nursing University in conjunction with the program on Kentucky Educational Television (KET) and on PBS affiliates in Florida's Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa markets.
