Students will compile a portfolio of evidence in relation to the ANMC National Competency Standards for the Midwife. The student will also complete all the clinical assessments required of them as part of their Professional Placement Experience. The student's observed competency in the designated clinical skills will be documented and submitted by way of their personal Professional Practice Portfolio. Students will have their midwifery practice observed over the semester by an experienced midwife to ensure that they are able to objectively meet the ANMC National Competency Standards for the Midwife.
On successful completion of this course they will be eligible to apply to the Australian Health Practitioners' Regulation Authority: Nursing and Midwifery Board for midwifery registration.
