Return to Midwifery Practice SCQF 30 points level 9
NHS boards across the north of Scotland and Robert Gordon University are working collaboratively to facilitate midwives whose registration has lapsed to return to practice.
We are providing a short course aimed to prepare midwives to re-join the Nursing and Midwifery register so they can return to practice in a safe and confident manner.
2. What you will study
Within the theory element of the course you will discuss current health and social care policies relevant to midwifery practice, demonstrating an understanding of current organisation of care locally and nationally, evaluate the legal and ethical basis of midwifery practice and analyse personal effectiveness within the multidisciplinary team, evaluating the impact of professional development and competence affecting maternity care.
During the practice element you will demonstrate and apply knowledge of current issues, including teaching and learning, within midwifery practice and demonstrate achievement of clinical skills and competencies required for return to midwifery practice.
3. How you will learn
Theory will mostly be provided in an online format and you will be fully supported to access the materials. Online learning will be supported by 2 mandatory face to face study days that will prepare you for university life and the academic skills you will need, and to remind you of some of the core clinical skills you will require to practice safely. Clinical placement will also be arranged for you to ensure you have the necessary experience of antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care.
The course will be completed after 5 weeks of online theory followed by 450 hours clinical placement with support in both university and practice areas. Clinical hours can be achieved in 12 weeks of 37.5 hours if choosing to study full time or 20 weeks of 22.5 hours if choosing to study part time.
4. Entry Requirements
You must have previously been registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council on the midwifery part of the register. Acceptance to all nursing and midwifery courses is subject to a health and immunisation screening and satisfactory PVG clearance (previously an enhanced disclosure).
5. Placements and Accreditations
At present we are accepting students who wish to work in the north of Scotland within NHS Grampian, NHS Orkney, NHS Shetland, NHS Tayside, NHS Western Isles and NHS Highland.
The course is Nursing and Midwifery Council Accredited for re-entry to the register.
