Registering as a midwife

If you want to register as a midwife and you obtained your diploma more than 5 years ago, you must meet additional requirements. You can register if you meet the work experience requirement or the training requirement. These are the same requirements that apply to re-registration.

Work experience requirement

Over a 5-year period, you must have worked 2,080 hours as a midwife. Work experience will only count if it meets the requirements of the Midwives' Evaluation Framework.

More information on the work experience requirement.

Training requirement

If you are not working, or have not achieved the standard number of hours, you can still qualify for re-registration through training.
