What career could be more rewarding than one that helps to bring new life into the world? This course, with an 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 or Portsmouth. 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. New for 2020: All nursing students on courses from September 2020 may be eligible for non-repayable government funding of at least £5,000 a year. Further details on who can access the support will be available in early 2020. Find out more information about the funding on the gov.uk website.For September 2020 entry: in order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching we regularly review all of our courses. The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has also published new requirements for midwifery education and our course curriculum is being reviewed to align to these. We will update this page in May 2020 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
