If you're a previously registered midwife, our re-entry to midwifery scholarships help you to re-enter practice in the NSW public health system through supervised practice. These scholarships are linked to subsequent employment and paid to the local health district/specialty network (LHD/SN) to support your supervised practice.
Up to $10,000 is available to the LHD/SN for each applicant.
If you want to re-enter practice as a midwife, you have to meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). This may include a period of supervised practice.
If the NMBA has granted provisional registration (with conditions), you may be employed during this time.
For more information on re-registration, see the NMBA Re-entry to Practice Policy and the Framework for the assessment of nursing and midwifery applicants for re-entry to practice.
The LHD/SN must also have a suitable position that's available and identified
For more information please contact the Nursing and Midwifery Office at the Ministry of Health on (02) 9391 9528
