Bachelor of Midwifery (BMID)
- Casuarina Campus
- External Studies
The Bachelor of Midwifery is primarily for students based in the Northern Territory due to the requirement to provide continuity of midwifery care. Indigenous women are strongly encouraged to apply. Interstate students should be aware that it is increasingly difficult to obtain clinical placement in jurisdictions other than the NT.
Supported by a framework of woman-centered care, and underpinned by the principles of primary health care, the Bachelor of Midwifery is a 3-year full-time degree that prepares students to work as professional and contemporary midwives within a variety of care contexts.
The course curriculum reflects the philosophy that midwifery is a profession in its own right and provides learning opportunities in order to prepare each graduate to function as a safe and competent midwife.
Graduates of this course will be eligible to apply for registration by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) to practice as a midwife in any state or territory of Australia.
Criminal History Check: Students will be required to submit an annual National Criminal Record Check prior to commencing placement.
The South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC) receives and processes applications for admission to Charles Darwin University Higher Education prospective students.
