Graduate Nurse & Midwifery Programmes

The Graduate Nursing and Midwifery Program at CGH is specifically designed for those who have completed a double degree Nursing and Midwifery course, and in 2025 CGH will be taking up to 2 positions in this program. We will also be offering 2 positions for Graduate Midwifery Single Entry.

Within both of these streams, we aim to develop confident and competent midwives with clinical exposure given across both general nursing and midwifery areas. Our health service is able to offer Graduates access to our level 4 neonatal newborn service and level 3 maternity service.
