Griffith University no longer runs the post-grad "masters" midwifery program. Any nurse that wants to become a midwife will now have to do it within the Bachelor of midwifery program (with credits of course) but it'll obviously take longer.
Other uni's still run it I believe for the moment anyway.....

Can anyone recommend a good Gynae book? We have a subject this semester but it has no set text, and I want to have a good Gynae book to add to my collection anyway. She has a list of recommended reading, but not sure if they are any good or not.

Ladies I need some advice.
I am a 1st year Bachelor of Mid student from Melbourne (studying at Vic Uni st albans) and I am moving to QLD next year (march). I am wanting to keep studying.
I realise I may have to start again if I am accepted and the curriculum's aren't exactly the same for 1st year, but thats ok I'm willing to start again and just get exemptions from stuff I have passed already.
We are wanting to move to burleight heads QLD - my question is what uni;s are best around that area that offer the direct entry course bach of mid?
Would REALLY like some advice, I have no idea about the Uni's in that area. I have looked up QTAC and I see there a few that offer the course but I am after some advice from people in the area or at the Uni's themselves about the uni's reputation, how placement works, lectures, anything really! Need to put preferences in when I apply and not really sure where is best.

Oh I am so sorry to her that. I pray that something will come your way!! That is not nice!!!
Parentingrocks, I might not be the best person to answer your question because I am not enrolled yet, however this past 6 moths i have researched where to go and which uni i would benefit the most. I live in Palm Beach (next beach south from Burleigh) This forum has been so fantastic as i have learned so much here already. Southern Cross University is by far the closest uni for you(literally less than 10 minutes), however the more i discover about their course the more i am not happy about it, apparently so many students start there and swap to Griffith Logan. When i spoke to the student liaison she told me that there are only 10 placements on the Gold coast and the rest would be shared between northern NSW towns. There are 60 entries every year so Our changes to have to drive down south is huge. Besides that it is not a continuous placement, you are constantly swapping which makes harder to get a future job. The nest closest option is Griffith Logan, apparently has a fantastic reputation, keen lectures and a fun program. very hard work but rewarding. It takes at least 45 minutes to get there, if we are blessed with good traffic, however we don't have to be there everyday. The course is done in lots of 2 weeks intensive every six months and the rest of the time we either have to attend the hospital or do it from home virtually! I hope some of the ladies in this forum will be able to help me answer this question and plea let me know if i am not correct. I am hoping to get in into griffith next year, applications open now on the first of August!! I am s excited and can't wait to start my course. Who knows we might even be able to car pull, if you decide there is where you want to go. By the way there are also some other options in Brisbane but i have not looked into it so I am not sure!! Good luck with your choices and with the move!! Take care

That is lame. I love how the govt on one hand talks about how increasing access to midwife-led care is a priority, blah blah blah, but then cuts graduate midwife positions with the other. What do you think you will do? Has the same thing happened to the others who graduated in your cohort?
This is making me very uncertain over which path to take - I recently found out I can apply for the Griffith BMid next year (long story - change in personal circumstances), or I can apply for the dual degree where I currently am. Although my heart is with the BMid, my head is telling me that it would be smarter to do the dual, if for nothing else than future employment prospects. And stories like this just make me more uneasy and more uncertain over which path to take!
Once again, I am so very sorry to hear of your predicament. I hope something suitable comes up for you very soon!
parentingrocks and kelgc, the Burleigh/Palmy area is my old stomping ground!! If I were you I'd be wanting to go to Griffith too - really, the only time you have to travel to Logan is for 4 weeks a year, which is nothing. I'm all keen to apply for Griffith for 2013 when QTAC opens next week, but stories like we just heard from studentmidwifeipswich have me worried that I'll be coming out too specialised in midwifery, and I'm now wondering whether the dual degree is the way to go for me. Maybe I'll see you there next year, who knows?

Just after some information about applying for bachelor of nursing.. I have read back a couple of pages that people who are applying to start nursing or midwifery start of next year (2013) are getting their documents ready? What documents are needed when applying? Applications open next Monday (6th August) and I will be applying that day so I want to be organized. Thanks
