There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Students are challenged in this subject to prepare for their transition into the role of a beginning graduate midwife. The subject focuses on how students prepare for a professional role using the ethico-legal framework and NMBA Midwife Standards for Practice. It prepares students to take on a leadership role by mentoring first-year students in practice and identifying renowned midwifery leaders that have come before them. Through the use of an e-portfolio, which involves completing a skill inventory the subject introduces students to the concept of lifelong learning. 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.
