Hi Everyone! Potential Aussie import here: I'm wondering if someone could clarify this for me:
Here in the states we have nurses who work on Labor and Delivery floors whereas a certified Midwife requires an Advanced Practice Masters degree.
I was wondering how this works in Australia: are midwifes bachelor's prepared nurses who are qualified to delivery babies? Do other nurses work on Labor and Delivery floors such as in the states, or is this simply restricted to midwifery nurses. Are international nurses with L&D experience restricted from working on these floors without the midwife degree when working in Australia?
Any answers to any questions would be of great help. Thanks so much!!
