Why choose this course?

This 85 week course is designed for registered nurses, with an adult nursing qualification, who would like to gain the knowledge, skills and values necessary to register as a midwife on the Nursing and Midwifery Council's professional register. It will prepare you to meet both the challenges of a modern career in midwifery and the complexities of 21st century healthcare. 

What you will study

You will study a wide range of subjects that provide the scientific knowledge base for midwifery practice, such as:

  • biological science related to midwifery practice;
  • the social and political context of maternity care;
  • professional, legal and ethical issues; and
  • research.

You will be exposed to a variety of educational strategies and practice settings, and will be encouraged to view learning as a lifelong process. Reflection is emphasised throughout the course to enhance the integration of theory and practice.

Clinical experience will be offered within local NHS trusts and the surrounding community. We aim to co-ordinate your clinical placements to reflect the modules being studied, integrating theory and practice.
