Course summary

Gain the academic and practical knowledge and skills required to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a midwife. We offer you the best start in studying the art and science of midwifery. At Edinburgh Napier University you have the exciting opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills to ensure that the care offered to women and their families has a woman centred approach and prioritises the ethos of compassion and professionalism. As a midwife you will be recognised as an expert in supporting, advising and advocating for women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum care. This course offers you the opportunity to develop clinical midwifery practice in a variety of healthcare settings and through simulated practice using our state of the art facilities. You will be supported by a team of midwife lecturers who have a wealth of expertise in both clinical practice and current research. Midwives are autonomous practitioners who practice in a multi-disciplinary care setting and midwifery is a very distinct independent health profession which possesses its own knowledge skills and competencies. Midwifery care holistically encompasses the unique experience of each individual woman throughout their journey. Please note: We will have a newly NMC accredited Midwifery Programme from September 2020. Please visit our website for full course and module details.
