Hope someone here can give me some advice.
I'm thinking of doing my Postgrad Mid next year through Curtin. I'm pretty clueless about the process. Do you need to get a position as a student midwife or just do clinical placements each semester? How many shifts a week do you have to do?
How intense is the course? I havent studied in 10 years and am nervous to go back to uni
Especially with 2 young children. Is it possible to do the course part time?
Thanks for your help in advance.
I thought I may be able to answer some questions. I'm doing undergrad mid at ECU but have worked with post grads from both curtin and ECU.
What I know of is that post-grads do blocks of study at uni and then assigned to a hospital employed as a student midwife where they do prac and get paid. I think they also do ongoing study whilst on prac like one day a week at uni or online units. Not sure how many shifts but I dont think it is full time maybe 4 shifts?? just guessing here. The course is 1.5yrs and definitely can do it part-time. I have worked with many but don't know the ins and out just thought id give you an idea.
Go onto curtins website and will have details there. Goodluck
