How to become a Midwife

The Office of the Chief Nurse and Midwife is pleased to advise that in 2018 midwifery education will be provided by the University of Southern Queensland (USQ).

USQ will provide the Bachelor of Midwifery (entry qualification) for Registered Nurses. The BMid is a flexible program via a supported, external delivery mode.

The USQ Bachelor of Midwifery for RNs is a two year course that:

  • is completed full time over 4 semesters via an external on-line study mode
  • partners with Tasmanian maternity services to support local clinical placements
  • holds 3 day residential schools at the beginning of semesters 1, 2 and 3
  • is accredited with Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) against the 2014 standards i.e. theory 50% and Midwifery Practice 50%
  • attendance at residential schools is mandatory and USQ anticipates that these will be established in Tasmania from Feb 2018
