Course Description

This degree will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge needed to provide care, support and advice to women during pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatally.

There is a strong focus on theory and practical experience, and you will do much of your learning in our unique clinican led, authentic simulated hospital and health service on campus. Here you’ll have the opportunity to practice your skills through real-life scenarios and feel confidently prepared for clinical practice. This simulated hospital environment fully led by practicing registered nurses and midwives (clinicians), known as the Horizon Hospital and Health Service (HHHS), is the only one of its kind in South Australia.

You will then have the opportunity to further develop these skills when you embark on real-world clinical placements across metropolitan, regional and rural hospitals and health services, under the supervision of registered midwives. During these placements, you will be actively involved in a number of births as well as the pre- and post-birth care of women. You will also follow women through their pregnancy and birth journeys through continuity of care experiences (COCE). In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to study a portion of your degree internationally, with overseas placements during your third year.

Registered midwives can work in a wide variety of healthcare settings, such as:

community and hospital services
rural and remote healthcare
