I started mine yesterday, as soon as I walked on floor I got to see a delivery it was awesome!!! I almost got to see another one before I left for the night!! This is also what I want to do when I graduate. Hope you have a good clinical!
Talking to OB nurses I've heard that "It is the only floor where we like to be busy" meaning that people generally coming to OB for happy events and not for being sick
An it is also a miracle! You witnesses the life coming to the earth. Facinating.
I guess hospice nursing is also about major life event but more on the sad side. Depened on your belifes
Wow I had so much fun tonight...got to see the little ones in the NICU which is where my daughter was for quite some time. This is why I wanted to become a nurse. I so want to be a L&D or NICU Nurse...
I'm glad to hear you had fun!!! I bet you had to stop yourself from just picking the little ones all up and snuggling them!
I'm also glad you have experience as a mom of a NICU baby. Wait, let me rephrase that, I'm not glad you had the experience, but I'm glad, SINCE you had the experience you can bring that to your clinical rotation. You will have an empathy for the babies and the parents not all the other students will have. Hopefully you won't need to draw on your own history but it's there if you need it. I'm hoping your children are all well now???
They are thank you. When I walked into the NICU there was a baby screaming and I did want to just hold the baby and make her alright. I will have a great time this semester but it might be a little rough at times. Good thing I can't have anymore kids or I might be pregnant...lol
