    hi,

    i just applied for straight midwifery and got an offer for this september but i have spoken to uni teachers and they said that if you apply for both midwifery and nursing you need to mention both in your personal statement and most university hate if your not committed to the one course. but you would be good to say something down the lines of being really interested in midwifery but you think it would be beneficial for those in your care if you trained to be a RGN first before becoming a RM as it would give you great transferable skills. lots of info on student midwive.net site take a look

    The uni who have offered me my midwifery place did not offer interviews to anyone who didn't have their personal statement totally focused on midwifery. There were 950 applied for 25 places, so I guess they can afford to be picky!
