Become a qualified midwife with us A shortage of qualified midwives means now's the perfect time to switch to this rewarding healthcare field. This course has been especially designed for registered adult nurses and has been developed in partnership with local NHS trusts. Studying midwifery at university will give you an equal mix of theory and practice, preparing you for a new career in just 85 weeks. You'll spend half your time with us learning theory to meet Nursing and Midwifery Council standards of proficiency. This will cover anatomy, physiology/pathophysiology, cultural and psychosocial issues, interprofessional working, legal and ethical issues. The other half will focus on clinical practice. You’ll be required to work shifts, experiencing 24-hour, seven-day care to develop your understanding of the needs and experiences of women and babies. You’ll have your own patients and get support from a mentor. To promote efficiency and continuity, you’ll follow a reduced caseload. How you’ll practice your skills Clinical practice will be a vital part of your studies. Your placement will take place at one of our partner hospitals: Whittington Hospital, North Middlesex Hospital, Royal Free London NHS Foundation. Many of our students get their first job after graduation in the same location as their placement. Your studies will be supported by our brand new facilities, including midwifery skills labs. Additionally, there’s a separate building where you’ll practise with a range of high-quality simulations such as resuscitation as well as dealing with women who require complex care. Our course is approved by the NMC and you’ll be placed on the professional midwifery register once you graduate. Your career opportunities after the completion of this course can go beyond hospitals. Your skills will be highly sought after by local clinics, GP surgeries, children’s centres, and private practices. Get the support you need We ensure every student has adequate support throughout their time with us. That’s why you’ll get matched with a Personal Tutor as well as a Student Learning Assistant and a Graduate Academic Assistant. They’ll have experience in your subject area and will be able to help whenever you need. Accreditation Our degree is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
