This subject requires students to reflect on their self-care strategies and prepare them for the transition as a graduate midwife in a complex maternity service. The subject focuses on how students prepare for a professional role using the Midwifery Graduate Attributes of woman centred care, professional competence, collaboration, resilience, diversity, professional engagement and Indigenous cultural competency. It prepares students to take ownership of their ongoing professional identity through the use of a portfolio, which involves writing resumes and preparing for 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.
