    Best textbook ever!!! Absolutely 100% purchase this one. Look at book depository its about 30-50% cheaper than the uni bookstore.

If other people have got their offers then I need to get mentally prepared for not getting in.
    Main round of offers when all applicants are considered isn't until the 16th of January. I wouldn't be expecting to receive an offer until then, so stop stressing.

    Does anyone know if any unis are offering B Midwifery externally? The only uni near me offering the course is Newcastle but they only do it full time and I don't think that will be practical with a 6mo. UTS does part time but that would probably also be impractical as it would take me a lot longer to get there plus I assume placements are all going to be in Sydney hospitals which would also be hard to get to.
    I know UniSA does external but apparently you still have to live local...

    It's a very hands on and practical course. When I studied, we had one day of lectures (which were delivered online), 3 days of clinical placement and 1 day of practical teaching at the uni (learning and practicing all our skills). It would have been impossible to do externally.

    Griffith University in Brisbane lets you do your placements at hospitals outside Brisbane, but you still need to attend campus for a 2 week intensive program each semester and it's all dependant on the hospital as to whether or not they'll let you do placement there.

    The opportunity to study will always be there, so why not hold off a couple of years until your little one is a bit older and be able to do the full-time program close to home.

    Hi, I am old (45) lol. I have a diploma applied science (nursing) and graduated as an RN in 1989. I did some post registration time too, then went to work in welfare. I have not nursed since 1990s and have not been registered since mid 2000s. I guess what I am wondering is, if I wanted to do middy - do I just start from scratch again or is there some recognition of my diploma?. As I am also unregistered, I think I can only register as a non practising nurse. I would be looking at Newcastle and not sure about how anything works these days lol

    start from scratch. You can only have 5 years of non-practicing time.

    Crunchie- I just emailed SATAC (SA) this question yesterday. They suggested that with midwifery being so competitive you are best to do the stat as well so you have two pathways in as it will increase your chances of acceptance :-)

    Hi Crunchie,

    just wondering if you ended up being accepted into the UTS course? Your circumstances sound very familiar to mine, so I'd love to hear how you went,

    thanks!

    Hi everyone!

    Is there anyone here who is or has applied for the Bachelor of Midwifery at the University of Canberra? Im going to be doing the UC preparation course (UCPREP) but i know i'll also have to the supplementary application form.

    The questions i need to answer are:

    1) What do you see as the most important issues facing childbearing women today?

    2) What do you think women and their babies and families need from midwives?

    3) What qualities, skills and knowledge will you bring to your role of midwifery student/midwife?

    4) What do you see as the most important issues facing midwifery today?

    I really want to answer these questions the best i can and i can only give half an A4 page answer for each. Any advice in terms of good websites, resources etc would be greatly appreciated!
    I Would also love to hear from anyone on the same path or someone with advice as to how i can give myself the best chances or getting a place!

    Thanks!
