Hi! I'm almost 2/3 of the way through my Accelerated BSN program! I'm researching potential hospitals where I can do my 6-week internship towards the end of my program. I'd really like an L&D unit in Florida that is supportive of students (I've had and heard of some unfortunate experiences with preceptors). Preferably, I'm interested in a hospital with a low c-section rate, one that is supportive of breastfeeding, and one with midwives attending some of the births. Morton Plant Mease Hospital in Clearwater seems appealing. Has anyone done an L&D internship there? Can you tell me how the experience was with your preceptor?? How about St. Joe's in Tampa? How supportive is the staff in general? Thanks for your help!!!
