I had two school leavers who couldn't be bothered doing the research and the whole process was a nightmare. I'm shocked we actually passed to be honest. The order the subjects appear on the group assignment list is the order you present so if you pick the first one then your up first with only a week or two to prepare. At least that was how they ran them last year. And make sure your continually swapping information with the other group members. So many groups had students drop out the day before their presentation taking all the information with them. It's a half hour presentation so alot of research and notes to re-find if one of your group members leaves you in the lurch.
    Glad to see this doesn't happen just in nursing but it is horrible when it happens. Unfortunately it happens when it comes to group projects, sometimes you can get a good group but a lot of the time there is always one in the group that doesn't pull their weight. The thing that gets me with group assessments is that it doesn't matter who puts in a lot of effort and who doesn't, the whole group gets the same mark (well that's how it is in nursing).

    The convenor always says if your having problems with one in the group then let her/him know, but seriously are you going to go and tell them coz if these people remain, then you have to spend the next 3 years with them.

    I just make sure the lazy ones I have come across, I steer clear of them when it comes to the next group assessment. Also people talk, so you get to know who to avoid.

Unfortunately it has affected a lot of us who were hoping to get our nursing and midwifery degrees this way. Now apparently we have to finish our bachelor of nursing and then they expect us to do the whole bachelor of midwifery....as if! Hopefully there will be enough of an up roar about it that they will change it back to the way it was for us who decided to get their nursing degrees first
    Yeah that must be super frustrating for you! There is actually one girl in our cohort that is an RN and she's decided to do the BMid as well. I think you'd get credits for a few subjects. A&P obviously and prep for practice. And I think you can get credits for the elective subjects as you can just list some of your nursing subjects as the elective ones. What I can say though is that this is one awesome degree I think it's a lot more comprehensive than the post grad was so they prefer it that way. Unfortunately I don't think there will be any change soon. The plan is that in 10 years time direct entry midwives will be the norm. It's just a pity you are stuck in the change-over phase.

    Hey Spice, it does suck big time!

    I wanted to do BMid but as I already had so much nursing/medic experience, I decided a few years ago to get my BN first and then the BMid as when I applied for uni, after you completed the BN, you could do the graduate BMid and you would be employed for the 12 months thru a maternity ward while studying it at the same time. Which I thought at the time would be great. Half way thru my BN they decided, nope lets change it, why after all these years do they want to change something, it's just so frustrating.

    Yes doing the BN first, and then having to do the BMid (if I decide to go that way), you do get some credits but really not that much, well not as much as you would expect.

    Anyway, that's my vent

    Sorry to disappoint you Super Trooper (hey that reminds me of the movie...must watch it again lol). There are a lot of us in the same situation now, who would have thought becoming an RN first would turn out to be such a crappy decision

    6 subjects left...ohhhh lucky you

    I think there might still be a few uni's who offer the post grad externally But I think all are all phasing it out in the nex couple of years. Try CQU and maybe a Newcastle uni I think still offers a post grad. The only challenge might be negotiating the paid placement at your local hospital.

    Hey Chrissy1974

    Sorry - just one more question. What textbooks have you had to buy?

    BIOL121?
    HLSC111?
    HLSC110?
    MIDW127?

    Thanks

    Any hints on where to buy text books? Co-op is crazy expensive, and book depository and Ebay not helping me.... In case anyone wants to sell secondhand I am chasing:
    Talbot, L & Verrinder, G (2010) Promoting Health : Primary Health Care Approach
    and
    Pairman, S., Tracey, S., (2010) Midwifery Preparation For Practice

    Nup, Newcastle Uni have dropped the post grad too. Well, currebtly they are not accredited to run it, and will look at it again in the future, so they say.
