This one-year part-time course leads students who have previously been registered as a midwife in Australia or have been out of the workforce for five to ten years, to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). This course is built on a woman-centred primary health care philosophy, as described in NMBA�s �National Competency Standards for the Midwife�. Students redevelop a comprehensive understanding of the integration of midwifery, medical and pharmacological theory as it applies to the provision of midwifery care. Students undertake professional practice, including the provision of continuity of care experiences to eight women in their journey through pregnancy, labour, birth and early motherhood.
