    I only know mine because it is a private hospital. I know 2 of the hospitals groups that received over 130 applications for their 8 positions.
    That's ridiculous I don't stand a chance! Haha

    Massive congrats again chicky! Although I'm not surprised someone snapped you up - you're going to make such a great midwife!

    Were you only wanting a part time position though?? Or was that all they were offering?? Part time grad year sounds kind of good actually ...

    Jade, by the time you finish honey I have my fingers firmly crossed that the situation has been addressed! You have every chance of getting one- you are an amazing woman and you will be an awesome midwife!
    I ideally wanted 4 days a week, but 3 was all they were offering. It is good though really, will give us a nice smooth transition to both of us working and the hours will be fantastic!

    Hi Everyone

    Sorry for crashing this thread but I have a question if someone could kindly answer for me. Does anyone know if you can do the double degree part time in Victoria? I've been looking but am unable to find a university that offers it. I'm not able to study fulltime as of December I will have 3 under 3 and all our family live Interstate so I have no support and not keen on putting my kids in fulltime daycare.

    TIA

    Oh, my apologies. I just saw that they had to be a current student at a university, whom can complete their studies within the next year. Didn't realise it was post-grad...which is weird because there are no post-grad programs at the moment lol.

    As Hollywood said, nope. Duals have been scrapped at the majority of uni's and the few uni's that do have them will be scrapping them within the next few years. So have to choose either nursing or middy. If you really want middy, you can't even do nursing and then a post-grad in middy anymore. Although that is being reevaluated because there is a huge uproar of RN's wanting to be RN/RM without the 3 year degree (or as griffith has it, 2 year if it's a recently completed nursing degree) and at a high level of education (who wouldn't like a 'post-grad' added to their wall, even if it's the same content as an undergrad lol).

    LaTrobe still has the "Postgraduate Diploma in Midwifery Science" and also the "Master of Midwifery". The post grad is 1 year full time and the masters is 1 year full time or 2-3 years part time. I spoke to one of the people from LaTrobe at the Nursing Expo recently in Melbourne and she said it can be better financially to do the Nursing degree and then the post grad as you get paid while you do the post grad. There was no mention of phasing it out, both at LaTrobe or Deakin, I spoke to someone from there too.

    If you are looking at going that way, you may want to call them back up and enquire when the post grad requires re-accreditation. As of 2010, accreditation of the course was discontinued. Only those that were running it were able to continue, however only until they required accreditation again.

    There are only a handful of uni's left in Australia that have not yet reached their re-accreditation date, but it will happen within the next 2-3 years- which is why I said it's being re-evaluated. It's been such an uproar, with demonstrations from students who did nursing and gained a HECs debt with the sole purpose of doing post-grad middy. It will require a complete change of the structure of content to meet the new registration requirements, such as are being with 40 women as they spontaneously birth their baby and completing 20 Continuity of Care episodes, which as you can imagine is impossible to fit into 12 months.

    Additionally, the masters is only open for registered midwives, not RN's. Whether that was by post grad or BMID. Masters is generally a specialisation in your area. You have to have a broader degree (ie/ nursing) and then you get to specialise (ie/ Masters of Clinical Nursing) with a masters. So a Masters of Midwifery is a specilisation (more refined skills, deeper knowledge etc) for those that are midwives.

Considering about 50% of the students will miss out this year in Vic (from our rough estimates) I am pretty pleased!
    I really should be doing those 2 assignments I am yet to finish that are Due Friday, but I must say, I am severely lacking motivation this semester, probably even more so now I know I just have to pass!
    CONGRATULATIONS. All that hard work is going to pay off Well done!

    Thanks for your replies.

    Looks like I'll be doing Bachelor of Nursing. I really want to work in NICU or SCN but thought having both degrees would be an advantage.

    Can any of you tell me which universities offer the BN part time? It seems to me that everyone only offers it full time.
