really? most people only get one offer?
and what didnt she like about the course if you dont mind me asking? Was it midwifery as a whole?
Yeah, Iv been considering various work experience placements, but have to get confirmation first
Don't take my word for it, i might be wrong....
She didn't like the fact that the midwife doesn't get to make much decisions and often have to ask for a doctor to do stuff, also she complained a lot about the ethics parts of the course, so she transferred to biology, she got to have some of her modules count towards her biology so it wasn't a completely wasted year

oh ok
what subjects do they do, and what unis are they planning on applying/going to??
The one with the offer did psychology, health and social, maths and biology at AS, but I'm not sure what they dropped for A2, probably H&S as thats btec

The other one did; psychology, biology, chemistry and maths at AS and is almost definately dropping chemistry.

yeah thats true, but cant believe people would drop out from such a good job
there's only so much abuse from patients colleagues and managers that anyone can stand - hence the reasons some units and trusts have recruitment and retention issues constantly ...

ohhh okay that makes much more sense, thank you
But honestly whats so bad about midwifery- it looks great to me
I'm not saying it's bad it's a wonderful career, but many find it isn't what they expect therefore they drop out. :}

I thought they actually wanted more midwives?
It's also to do with the fact that there's not enough working midwives who are willing to be mentors/shadowed by a student midwife.

As well as those already said, government supplying the funds for it, and the fact that call the midwife and one born ever minute has made people think oh yay babies! I want to be a midwife.-.- each to their own, but that does annoy me a lil bit.

Programmes like 'one born every minute' have made it extremely competitive!
