It's quite a specific course but I nabbed this from UCAS site:
"Understandably, the vast majority of midwife graduates will go on to become practicing midwives in the NHS.
-Interdisciplinary skills also lend themselves to careers as:
-community health worker
-learning disability nurse
-care worker
-psychologist
-family project worker
-nurse "


In terms of courses, you can research conversion courses. These are courses for people like you who have changed their mind about a degree or job and would like to go into a completely different career path. This can include courses on: Psychology, Law, Medicine, Teaching, Nursing, IT, Computer Science, Business, Engineering etc...
They are usually quite short too depending on what subject

I've cost the NHS a lot?? I have worked for free for 3 years, full time, during coronavirus, as part of staff with patients of my own, without getting paid, having to pay for travel AND having to pay over 9k each each year for the course. It has cost MYSELF a lot, time and money.

Many jobs in the NHS - they may not initially pay as much as Midwifery - https://www.jobs.nhs.uk/xi/search_vacancy/

And there are also Masters level courses to lead you into other, totally different areas such as Psychology, Social Work, Law etc - https://www.prospects.ac.uk/postgrad...ersion-courses

Lol hardly, you do know student midwives work for FREE doing full time hours, the NHS owes them if anything. Just cos you do the degree doesn't mean you are now indebted to the NHS . Sometimes we realise things late, it happens

This thread is not asking 'have I let the NHS down/cost them money' - the OP is asking for career/pathway suggestions so please can you respect that and keep your other opinions to yourself.

oh no, I was just curious about how that works (since they've paid over 9k, maybe not all midwifery students get it?). I have no opinion on it, just a question.
They don't have to answer

it costs over £51,000 to train a midwife/nurse. Workforce Plan for England 2015/16. (2015). Health Education England. so probably a lot more now.
