Bachelor of Midwifery (Post Registration) (Registered Nurse Entry)

Flinders University

This Bachelor of Midwifery (Registered Nurse Entry) offers registered nurses who are graduates of a nursing degree and/or hold a current practising certificate as a registered nurse the opportunity to build on knowledge and skills gained from nursing practice and develop these into a midwifery practice context and prepare students to practice in the role of a registered midwife.The curriculum reflects the philosophy that midwifery is a profession in its own right. The degree will provide learning opportunities in order to prepare each graduate to function as a safe and competent women-centred midwife able to meet the National Competency Standards for the Midwife of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

Entry Requirements:

Applicants must (1) be a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and (2) hold a current practising certificate. Where there are more applicants than places available, those with a bachelor degree will be ranked on academic merit; those who are hospital-trained will be ranked on the basis of relevant work experience - such applicants are therefore advised to provide details of their work experience when applying.


This degree provides registered nurses with the knowledge, skills and experience necessary for them to demonstrate midwifery competencies and practise as registered midwives at the completion of the degree. Professional experience placements will be undertaken for the duration of the degree in agencies and hospitals in South Australia. Professional experience placements will include morning, afternoon, night, weekend and public holiday shifts and may be rostered at any time in the calendar year.
