This is a question arising from something in the 2012 studying thread, I am a SAHM hoping to go to Uni next January. I have a DD17 mo and DS3mo, I want to study Midwifry. I am undecided whether or not to apply for direct entry midwifry or nursing then postgrad midwifry. I have spoken to some nursing friends and there seems to be some issues with the opinions on direct entry midwifry.
So tell me if you know, once qualified are direct entry midwives considered less qualified than those who are qualified nurses first? I am Really interested in midwifry, i am 35 and will be 40 when qualified hoping to do 1 year parttime then 2 years fulltime. Direct entry seems better solution for me but i dont want to limit my job prospects. Also i wonder is there an underlying notion in the workplace between midwives that unless you have done nursing first you couldnt have the knowlege to be a great midwife...
Also has anyone sat a STAT as a means of entry to UTS and whats the score needed to get in?..
Looking forward to your opinions!
Im so friggin excited to be doing this!!!!
