Book Description

The NMC have produced standards of proficiency for pre registration midwifery education and those standards have been written in an “academic” language, for higher education institutions. Each student prior to being admitted to the profession must have achieved the proficiencies stated in the NMC publication. The purpose of this book is to provide students with material related to the standards of midwifery education. The students will be able to use the contents of this text and relate it to their own approved programme of midwifery study, as their programme of study would have had to comply with NMC’s requirements. It will help student midwives appreciate how their own programmes have been designed, and why they are required to study and understand some of the subjects they are, or will be studying.

By Atmie89
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Didn't rate this book at first, but as I started my 18 month course in midwifery I found it very useful and have referenced in a few assignments-especially professional and ethical practice! I did originally buy to read prior to the course but I as I say I didn't rate it at first...definantly would now recommend!

By Maz

I have only had this book a few weeks but it has been fantastic to help expand my knowledge. It's my 'go to' book now for most things, and allows me to understand the basics before reading more indepth in other books. Recommend this to all 1st year and aspiring midwives.
