Overview

You will have the opportunity to learn in our multi-million-pound Alison Gingell Building with up-to-date equipment and extensive simulation facilities – from basic life support manikins to high tech simulation equipment which emulate patient responses. You will also have opportunities to use equipment found in the real world of practice, such as medical devices to assist with all elements of care and especially medication administration.

You will explore how to provide universal care for all women and additional care for those women with more complex health needs. Midwifery students should work towards becoming autonomous practitioners upon graduation and should take a leadership role in decisions regarding care within multi-professional settings. Midwifery (Hons) course is offered at Coventry University .

Career

There are thousands of midwives in today’s NHS yet the continued rise in the number of births has led the Royal College of Midwives to predict a 3,500 shortfall of qualified professionals in England.

There is a strong practical emphasis on this course, with 50% of the course expected to be spent on placements. On graduating successfully from this course, you can apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (registration fee may apply), which enables you to practise immediately in either the NHS or independent practice. As a registered midwife, you’ll have opportunities to work with a range of other professionals including, obstetricians GPs, health visitors, neonatal nurses and maternity support workers.

As well as helping you to find suitable work placements and give you advice on how to get the most out of them, the university can provide you with support you when you are ready to begin your professional career.

There will be considerable opportunities for educational and professional development. Learning Beyond Registration (LBR) has always been as essential element within the role of the midwife. A range of continuing professional development modules and courses are available at Coventry University.
