Jo Mulheron is a registered midwife studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Midwifery.
Jo believes that, as a midwife, she has a responsibility to continue improving her knowledge in the field.
“The care we provide to women is so important. Studying at Victoria University of Wellington has allowed me to grow my complex-care midwifery skills, which is really important because I work as a midwife in a challenging tertiary hospital environment.”
To help her achieve her goals, Jo wanted to be sure she was studying with the best. She chose the University’s School of Nursing, Midwifery, and Health Practice because it had a reputation for being a supportive and well-respected provider of midwifery education.
“Good education encourages and inspires you to think outside the box. My study with the University has opened my mind and made me assess critically how I practise as a health professional.”
And Jo doesn’t plan to stop developing her knowledge any time soon. She has her eyes on a Master’s degree next.
“I have an open mind and a willingness to learn. I have met some very inspirational people who are passionate about helping others to reach their full potential. You just never know how far you can go until you try,” she says.
