    i would get in touch with your loacal university and enquire about the 18 month conversion program. i am a nursing student who knows that i want to be aq midwife so that is how you go about it. i think that the course can be done part time

    UK_nurse the problem is the 18 month course post reg midwifery course is only possible if you have done adult branch. This means yu would have to do the direct entry 3 year midwifery course, I am not sure if they APL any of your child branch course and so reduce the 3 years by a small margin.
