    Hi Oscsmum. Your post grad course sounds very interesting. Hope you're enjoying it.
    hey guys; hope exams are going well
    just wondering if anyone happens to have any of the following textbooks they'd like to sell;
    • Stables and Rankin: (2010) Physiology in Childbearing with anatomy and related biosciences. Sydney: Elsevier.
    • Pairman Pincombe Thorogood and Tracy (2010) Midwifery: Preparation for Practice.
    • Gray Smith and Homer (2009) Illustrated dictionary of Midwifery. (Elsevier).
    thanks guys
    Sorry, I don't have the texts for sale but I can tell you that you'll use the stables & Rankin and Pairman texts a LOT! I didn't bother buying the Illustrated dictionary (& have not needed it ).

    You could do a search of GU's textbook exchange for a copy at:
    https://intranet.secure.griffith.edu...tbook-exchange

    well my exams are all finished & now I'm a little bored Just awaiting grade results which will probably take a couple of weeks! I should enjoy the breather though as we are back at uni in 3 weeks for our intensive block and then straight back into placement and study. On the upside, I've finished all my lovely CoC mums until next year.

    Stay well everyone.

    WOW. That does sound like a fabulous rewarding job. Nursing can take people to some terrific jobs if one wants to study further. Good on you.

    Being a direct entry midwife student, I now wonder what is available beyond midwifery? (not that I'll want to do anything else for a good while....just looking forward to becoming a midwife atm ).

    There are a few mums with young kids in GU's program - they seem to cope OK but some have gone to part-time.

    You won't know unless you give it a go Good luck.

    Hi Ladies, I was wondering if anyone would mind helping me with a few questions regarding studying midwifery in Brisbane...

    I live on the northside and am considering ACU and UQ as my preferences. I really like the sound of the UQ couse as it sounds like you jump right into hands on experience! Can anyone explain to me the days/times/locations required with this course?

    I have a 4 year old son who starts school next year and although I have a partner I am a single Mum so really need to have a picture of what it will be like to see how I feel I could manage.

    Also how do those of studying at ACU find the course? I guess the same questions regarding days required and how the course is structured would be great to know...

    I don't know much about the Griffith course - would love for anyone who studies there to shed some light on that one too

    I have studied a Bach Arts and Grad Dip Ed at ACU - I'm assuming that puts me in a fairly good position to get accepted? Are there any specific pre-recs for these courses?

    Hmmm I think that is all for now lol sorry for the onslaught of questions. Feel free to walk me through as much about your experience as you have time for!!

    Thank you all so much in advance

    Thank you so much for your reply!

    I didn't do science in senior at high school, only to year 10, how would I go about rectifying that?

    So in first year...
    One day one campus at Ipswich - can you do these lectures online at all?
    Then one day of PBL (tutorials/clinical skills) - at the hospital? what does that involves exactly? I'm guessing we would learn basic observations ect at first? blood pressure ect?
    And then 2-3 days of Clinical Practice - is this the hospital shifts? I've been on prac for teaching, would it be like that, buddied up with a mentor or similar?

    Sorry for so many questions, I must sound rather silly but I really want to have a clear picture of what is involved!

    Thank you again!

    Hi there
    Saw your post - I am a new member but have watched for a long while.
    I am also in Perth, have two boys age 10 and 5 and am starting nursing at ECU in Joondalup in August part time this semester and then hopefully full time next semester when little one starts pre primary.
    I am really excited to start - really wanted to direct entry midwifery but tbh I think I need the flexibility of part time to start.
    Would love to hear from you - personal message me if you like.
    Lesley

    ps to everyone on this thread - you have all been an inspiration to me over the past four months. Watching" you get your acceptances and starting your courses.

    Hi there,

    I'm a GU 2nd year midwife student and also a primary teacher.

    Can I ask why you're not teaching? My story is I wanted a full-time job & don't like relief teaching much

    We students at GU have debated all courses (GU, ACU & UQ). One of our girls came from ACU's mid programme & she says that ACU is much better in teaching the clinical skills before you go on placement and is very well supported. We do 20 follow through's and 10 of them must be done in 3rd year. We do 2 weeks of 'intensive' at the beginning of each semester that includes some lectures, and labs etc. After this we go straight in placement and our learning is by way of online modules that we have to work through as well as online classrooms that we log into if we can otherwise, we can watch them later. Our program does not run to the normal uni year (13 or so weeks a semester; we do many more weeks). We started the last week of Jan this year and will have 3 weeks off before our next intensive and then finish end of December. Our hospitals are Logan, Redland & Gold Coast but I believe other hospitals may be negotiated. We do not have problem based learning (PBL).

    Basically, if you want lectures, tutes etc then choose to study at either ACU or UQ and if you're happy to learn mostly off campus in a self directed way then think about GU. Also, GU doesn't have the pre-req of a science/biology subject. Some people have done this via an online uni course - perhaps google to see what's possible or someone that knows may come in and answer hopefully.

    With your existing qualifications I think you'll have no problem being offered a place at whichever Uni you choose. I got an early round offer with my teaching degree.

    Good luck

    Thanks for these replies, Ladies! They are super helpful!

    studentmidwifeipswich - great, that gives me quite a good idea of what I'm up against. Sounds like a huge load! Must give the Uni's a call about pre-req's!


    Brunfelsia Dreaming - That info is great - the GU course was one I really didn't know anything about and actually it sounds quite good! I don't mind self directed learning at all and it seems like it may be a little more flexible so that i can manage my time a bit more around my son? After the 2 week intensives at the begining of semester how many days do you do a week at the hospitals? what are the shifts like, are they a mix of times or generally during daytime?

    Also I would love to hear from anyone studying at ACU too to give a good balanced persepective of whats on offer.

    I was wondering if anyone knows which graduates have the best employment opportunities out of all the Uni's.... is one course more respected than the others?
