Please note: on completion of Year 3 you will be required to sit the Midwifery Council National Exam (at an additional cost of $200) to enable you to be registered to practice as a midwife.
You can work as a midwife, providing midwifery services either as a self-employed midwife with a caseload in the community or employed in a hospital setting providing maternity services to women.
Many graduates have established practices with their colleagues or joined an existing midwifery practice.
Midwives have the opportunity to develop skills in health management areas, education, and women's health settings and to participate and undertake research projects as well as work with other health professionals to enhance health care provision for women and their families.
