MID443 Midwifery Practice (24)
CSU Discipline Area: Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health
Enrolment restrictions: Available only to students enrolled in the Postgraduate Diploma of Midwifery course
Abstract: This subject is based on the compulsory midwifery practice component of the pre-registration course and, as such, includes a minimum of 1500 hours midwifery practice where midwifery students are employed by an accredited partnering maternity unit. It is a 24 point subject that is attended over the full course duration. Essential midwifery experiences identified by the NSW NMB must be achieved in order for the student to be eligible to apply for registration as a midwife. Achievement of these midwifery skills are recorded, assessed and reflected on in this subject. The student is also required to critically examine issues that can affect the delivery of woman-led midwifery care.
