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!

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.

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.

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.
