Note: Graduate Diploma in Midwifery – Clinical Placements
Midwifery students must secure an employment position at a maternity hospital for the duration of the clinical component, which involves a minimum of 1500 hours of practice. A Clinical Contacts List 2016 has been created to advise you of the metropolitan and country hospitals that may be available.
You are encouraged to contact the hospital(s) of your choice to make preliminary inquiries about employment at the same time as preparing your University application. Each hospital coordinates its own recruitment and selection process and all students are paid for their clinical time. You are advised to discuss details further with the Course Coordinator.
What our students say:
“The nursing course offers a variety of experienced staff and resources, and now with optional subjects, gives students an opportunity to choose their own nursing pathway. The course focuses on both clinical skills and broader aspects of patient care.”
Liron Levi, Nursing Graduate
“The course is challenging but extremely rewarding. I found it difficult to juggle a full-time degree with my four children, but the continuous support I received from the midwifery team and my family helped me pull through. It’s been great to see my dreams become a reality and I’m looking forward to working as a midwife at Armadale Health Service.”
Margaret-Anne Martin, Midwifery Graduate
