MidStart 2022 Campaign

NSW Health is the largest employer of midwifery students. We are currently recruiting midwifery students for positions in many NSW public health facilities.

Midwifery students are registered nurses (with current registration with the Nurses and Midwives Board of Australia). The program involves employment as a midwifery student in a NSW public health facility whilst studying a Postgraduate Diploma of Midwifery at university.

Benefits include:
* Employment whilst studying at university
* Consolidated clinical support and experience to meet requirements for midwifery registration
* Release for university face to face program as required
* Ability to choose training hospitals and universities

What you'll be doing

Under the supervision of the registered midwife, the midwifery student works within a supported environment to provide care for women, babies and families to enable the completion of the Postgraduate Diploma in Midwifery.

As a midwifery student, you will be required to provide midwifery care across the maternity service, under the supervision of registered midwives. You will work a 7-day rotating roster (morning, late and night shifts). You will also undertake Continuity of Care experiences involving establishing, maintaining and concluding a professional relationship with women through their pregnancy, labour, birth, and postnatal period. Time spent providing Continuity of Care will, from time to time, be on top of your contracted hours of employment.

Where you'll be working

Training Hospitals and Universities

Local Health Districts have partnership arrangements in place with universities. Before you start your application you should check that your preferred university provider and training hospital have such an arrangement in place. Contact universities and hospitals before you commence your application.

Training in rural hospitals may include periods of rotation to larger facilities to ensure you gain the required clinical experience. As you will be required to complete Continuity of Care experiences as well as your rostered shifts, the distance required to travel to your preferred hospital is also something for you to consider.
