Capital, Coast and Hutt Valley encourage Registered Nurses to consider Midwifery as a great career choice.

Several tertiary education providers are currently developing a course specifically for registered nurses to attain their midwifery registration. At the present time Otago Polytechnic and ARA Polytechnic have been approved to provide a shortened courses which would be run for people with an existing health profession degree. 

Registered Nurses are required to complete two specific topics and other health professionals three, then they join midwifery students at the start of their second year. 

If you would like to discuss a recognition of prior learning programme with us please email Carolyn.coles@ccdhb.org.nz or phone 027 836 0294.
