This course is accredited by the Nursing & Midwifery Council and offers an equal balance of theory and practice with a strong emphasis on women-centred care.
You can opt to study at either of our coastal campuses; Bournemouth or Portsmouth. Alongside learning knowledge from highly qualified and experienced practitioners, during compelling units such as antenatal & postnatal care of mother and baby, labour and birth, and medicines management, etc, you’ll use our state-of-the-art clinical rooms to practice your blossoming skills in a safe environment, before transitioning into the workplace. There you’ll get to spend 50% of your course time on placements with mothers and their newborn babies. 94% of our students are in work or further study within six months of graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2018).
Your first placement will typically be in the community or a birth centre and starts in week seven of the course. Other clinical experience will include neonatal care, gynaecology and theatre and throughout the course you will have the opportunity to organise a number of visits to areas/organisations of interest to you, in relation to public health, such as: Sure Start programmes, National Childbirth Trust, health promotion departments, etc.
