This program provides a strong academic foundation focusing on competent, culturally safe, evidence-based midwifery and nursing practice. The practice-based curriculum blends basic and applied sciences with the art of nursing and a wellness model of woman-centred midwifery care. It prepares practitioners with skills across both nursing and midwifery. Clinical placements ensure that students apply theory to practice in a range of settings, with a focus on practice in rural, remote, and tropical contexts.
