Midwifery - Liverpool John Moores University

Midwives work individually and as part of a team to provide support and education to women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and in the postnatal period. Monitoring and assessing the health and well-being of the mother and baby. We want our graduates to be confident, competent and skilled practitioners capable of working independently and as part of a team leading practice and the profession. LJMU’s new clinical practice suites will enable you to train on-campus using hospital-standard facilities, including virtual patients and a state-of-the-art birthing simulator. The Suites show a patient’s journey from a home environment through to rehabilitation. They cover a range of areas with the latest clinical equipment for simulations and clinical skills development in child nursing, adult and mental health nursing, paramedic practice, social work and midwifery. This environment will help prepare you for the rigours and realism of actual practice, giving you the confidence to deal with real service users in the NHS, private and voluntary settings. New Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Professional Standards The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)​ is the professional body that evaluates and monitors all Nursing and Midwifery courses in the UK. Only education and training providers accredited by the NMC can deliver courses that lead to Qualified Nurse or Midwife status and registration with the NMC. In 2018, the NMC released plans to update the standards for pre-registration nursing and midwifery programmes, starting after 28th January 2019. The new standards set out the entry requirements, length of programme, methods of assessment and the level of award. To ensure that LJMU's programmes are at the forefront of nursing and midwifery education and meet the new standards, we're working closely with our practice partners updating our course content and student assessment methods. The course content currently shown on this website is based on the existing NMC standards, and will be different to the course delivered from September 2020, but will give you an insight into the type of study involved.
