What career could be more rewarding than one that helps to bring new life into the world? This course, with its 100% graduate employment rates and accreditation by the Nursing & Midwifery Council, can teach you to do just that.
With a strong emphasis on women-centred care, the course offers an equal balance of theory and practice. Alongside learning knowledge from highly qualified and experienced practitioners, during compelling units such as antenatal & postnatal care of mother & baby, labour & birth, pathophysiology, and medicines management, you’ll also use our clinical skills rooms to practise your 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.
You can opt to study at either of our coastal campuses – Bournemouth, which starts in September, or Portsmouth, which begins in February. As well as mixing with midwifery students, you’ll work closely with other trainee healthcare professionals from different areas of the healthcare system – promoting interprofessional learning, plus communication, leadership, and team working skills, all of which will be essential for gaining employment after you graduate.
