6cp; 3hpw | Face-to-Face on Campus: Week 1, 2, 8 and 12.
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject challenges students to prepare for their transition into the role of a beginning graduate midwife. It builds on the first-year subject 92350 Becoming a Midwife by focusing on how students prepare for a professional role using the ethico-legal framework and NMBA Midwife Standards for Practice. It prepares students to take ownership of their ongoing professional identity through the use of an e-portfolio, which involves writing competent resumes and appearing confident in job interviews. In preparation for entering the workforce, students also explore strategies for self-care and work–life balance to sustain them throughout their midwifery career. This subject motivates students to engage with their profession in a responsible and honourable way, to develop a sense of constructive agency and to become a positive influence in the work life of others.
