May 14, '12I applaud your confidence as a midwife in your profession in your country.
However, midwifery in Australia is seen as something much more than assisting in a birth from go to whoa and suturing a women after childbirth.
AS for IV therapy, this is a skill all Registered nurses are expected to have on graduation, same as undergraduate midwives and of course diploma students are nurses.
The whole philosophy of being with woman is part of midwifery education, along with our many different cultures towards the woman and birth - differences, family studies, and of course the choice of women to give birth at home. Birth is seen as just one part of being with woman, education, birth choices and plans to be made, ethics, legislation, medications (different to those of the US and therefore the Phillipines) required in birth, mature gestation, teen gestation.
Australian view towards the gestational woman, all these need to be studied.
Midwives are sole practitioners they see the woman early pregnancy, straight through to full term, educating and supporting the woman.
Midwvfes deliver babies here - uncomplicated and are seen as the educator and are often ''it' with no medical assistance, they need to know what is wrong and when to call for assistance and often, if much experienced the ones to tell junior doctors what is needed.
ps episiotomies went out years ago and are now frowned upon here.
I do know diploma is still being excepted this year, think masters starts next year.
Here is the specific link for midwifery I found as well

What do you suggest- I do continue with my student visa or the bridging program? I am really confuse guys. Right now i dont know what to do. Some are saying that i should take the path of Aged Care.
And about registering to the agencies in Australia, I dont get that either.

May 24, '12hi.. i am for the june25 intake at acfe.. anyone here who could possibly become my classmate???
May 31, '12Hi, I have been reading this thread for quite sometime now because I am really interested to take the BP in Australia. I have few questions though, and I hope I could get answers here... Few things about me, I already took the IELTS last April 2012 and my OBS is 7.5, I graduated last 2009 but only have 6 months nursing volunteer experience.
Here are the questions:
1) Is it okay to send my papers to AHPRA first or should I wait for PRC (to send my Certificate of Good Standing)and IDP (for my IELTS result) then send my papers? I understand PRC and IDP have to mail the respective documents.
2.) For NBI, I already have it but there's no "FOR AUSTRALIAN NURSING STUDIES" written on it. Do I need to apply for a local NBI and another NBI for abroad purposes again?
Please enlighten me on these. Thanks so much.
Jun 11, '12Quote from jayvinciblehi jayvincible. im stacey. i was looking for posts on how to work in australia when i can across here and read your post. are you in australia now?hi, i am new here.. I already have my eligibility letter from ahpra and already sent an application for bridging program in IHNA/VCHN. They replied and asked for IELTS and recommend to enroll in their online course which is Introduction of Bridging Course Program. My concern is: Is it a trend nowadays to apply for a preparatory course like I mentioned for a nurse to qualify to a Bridging Course Program?
how is your course with INHA?*
what is the application form that you filled out in applying for APHRA?
I visited the site and i found so many pdf forms. i wonder which one there is the general registration form? hope to hear from you soon. thanks:redpinkhe
