A dozen new midwives began their journey with Darling Downs Health this week, starting a graduate program with a week of orientation.
The 12 will be located at Kingaroy, Dalby, Chinchilla, Warwick and Toowoomba hospitals
Nursing and Midwifery Services Executive Director Andrea Nagle welcomed the 2020 cohort.
“We look forward to supporting them in their transition to registered midwifery positions,” Ms Nagle said.
“It’s an exciting time for these midwives as they are commencing their midwifery careers during International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.
“It is our year to showcase the incredible work our midwives do by supporting women across our birthing facilities and bringing new life into this world.”
The graduate program is for 12 months and is an opportunity for the midwives to put everything they have learned at university into practice.
