Abstract

Introduction
Simulation-based education (SBE) in midwifery undergraduate education is recognised as a valuable tool for developing confidence, embedding theoretical learning and supporting students to develop competence in clinical and behavioural skills in preparation for registration (Lendahls & Oscarsson, 2017). Transition to registration is recognised as a period of stress and flux as new registrants seek to assimilate their knowledge, maintain confidence and embed skills in the dynamic reality of the clinical environment (Hunter et al, 2019). Newly qualified midwives (NQM) are recognised as particularly vulnerable to burnout and leaving the profession therefore approaches to support transition to registration and the associated behavioural skills is especially important to consider. The student experience of simulation and post-registration simulation experience may have potential to mitigate against the challenges of transition to registration and is an area which could be explored further within midwifery education and practice.

Objectives
To present the experience of NQMs who have experienced undergraduate SBE in QUB and the extent to which SBE has enabled the transition to registration.
