Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Midwifery
The University of Queensland - St Lucia

Course outline

This dual degree provides students with a broad set of skills that encompass the disciplines of nursing and midwifery. Graduates are able to register as both a nurse and midwife. Midwives safely guide expectant mothers (and parents) through pregnancy, birth and the weeks that follow through effective midwifery practice. Nurses are able to work in a variety of areas, including acute care, aged care, mental health, Indigenous health, rural health, public health or community health. You undertake extensive practical experience, starting in first year. For more information, visit Bachelors of Nursing/Midwifery at UQ.


The clinical placements are delivered through a home hospital group model at Mater or other hospitals in South-East Queensland including Metro North, Metro South, West Moreton and Darling Downs. Generally, students remain at the same home hospital group for the duration of their studies. For more information, visit Clinical placements on the UQ website. Students in Mater home hospital groups attend lectures at St Lucia and small group teaching and clinical skills simulation at Mater South Brisbane. Students in other home hospital groups attend lectures and small group teaching at St Lucia and clinical skills simulation at a partner hospital site.
