Launching Your Career in Nursing and Midwifery: A Practical Guide

02 October 2016
Volume 24 · Issue 10

It can be daunting entering the third year of your midwifery degree. There is a lot going on with your course, plus the fact that you need to start looking for a post-qualification job.

Launching Your Career in Nursing and Midwifery by Annabel Smoker may be just what you need if you're approaching this crossroads of study and employment.

We all have different ambitions, and that is something that Launching Your Career… actively supports. Help is given to assist candidates looking for work in the NHS, but the book also provides information about a vast array of opportunities outside of our health service, and even outside of the UK. Independent midwifery is covered, as well opportunities in the armed forces, postgraduate education, clinical academic careers and experiences abroad, with tips and advice about how to secure such roles and opportunities.

The book is easy to navigate and can be read in any order, so you can pick and choose the information you need. From career planning to ‘employment beyond first post’, the chapters each cover a different part of the application process and provide activities that will help you think about your skills and goals. Links to useful websites are also given throughout the book, with a section at the end directing you to a number of careers-based websites both within and outside of the NHS.
