|Department||Nursing, Health and Professional Practice|
|Telephone||0845 606 1144|
The midwifery programme has been designed to incorporate the six domains specified in the Nursing and Midwifery Council Standards for Pre-registration Midwifery Education (2019).
Modules within the curriculum have utilised the University curriculum design framework to provide relevant and coherent learning opportunities to deliver a high-quality student experience and support your progression and success. Modules are designed to become progressively challenging at each level using learning and achievement from earlier levels as a foundation. Continuity of care and carer are linked to improved health outcomes for mother and baby, as well as greater satisfaction with care and these are key elements embedded within the programme.
Graduate destinations The midwifery programme prepares you for the variety of settings in which you may eventually work by ensuring that you develop knowledge, experience and confidence to be able to work with service users as partners and with other healthcare professionals.
The programme has been developed to meet the key themes within the Standards of Proficiency for Midwives (NMC 2019). On completion of the programme, you will be eligible to apply to join the NMC Register, allowing you to practice as a midwife. The need for qualified midwives is ever-expanding, so you can be confident that your qualification will open up many opportunities for employment.
