Maternal and Child Nursing, Deadly?
- 0Apr 9, '13 by NurseKisHello my fellow nurses, I am about to finish my 3rd semester of NS!!! (2 MORE TO GO!) I am really into babies and antyhing that has to do w/babies; But people at my school are scaring me by telling me that that subject is really hard. I will be taking it along with Med Surg 2, are there any tips? Any books that helped you through this class? Please help me out? Thanks!

I love this book! It is small enough to fit in your pocket in clinical. It covers pretty much all the topics you will need to know. I might be a little biased but my OB professor is one of the authors. Trust me though, she is highly respected and one of the most intelligent women I know. It's a great resource. You won't regret it! I also work in L&D as a RN fellow and find it useful! I keep it in my mailbox at work for a quick reference

- 1Apr 10, '13 by JennybrieI found it difficult because I wasn't interested. I don't have any kids and don't plan on having any plus maternity and peds is the last place on earth I would want to work. If I can pass with the text book and lecture notes provided, anybody who loves the subject will do fine.
P.S. Don't think that someone else's experience will reflect how you will do in a course. Think positive and you'll do great. Good luck!!

In my program, maternal-child is pretty straight forward and fairly easy. Med/Surge seems to be the killer every semester for us.
- 1Apr 10, '13 by ~passionateSN~My OB teacher is harsh!!! I can get every answer correct on all the nclex practice questions but they do not even come close to her test questions.. She makes up her own questions so it is very difficult. Half of the class is failing and I am passing by a hair! But I love OB and I do understand it.. but her tests are just way over the top...
