Thanks for the info..I am living in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Can anyone give me a clue as to what the situation is here?
I too am preparing to take the NCLEX (I am from Australia) and am, of course, so nervous. I have found a college in my state, GA, which offers a short (7-10 day) course in NCLEX review but it is very expensive at around $1000. Perhaps there may be a college around your area. I appreciate the hints on Fryes book..I will definately give it a go. Goodluck ruthliu..i am sure we will be fine. Scared, but fine!
In Australia women are often encouraged to immerse themselves in a jacuzzi style bathtub right up until the crowning when most larger establishments do not allow waterbirths. However, correct me if I have my facts confused, but I have always been under the impression that jaccuzzi's (presumably with air bubbles) are to be avoided due to the possibility of air embolism which may occur via the opened cervix which can cause maternal death. Otherwise water immersion during labour seems to be very efficient in decreasing the amountof pain relief required during the labour.
I am an Australian RN recently moved to the US and wish to work in the OB area but have no idea how to start or where to even look. I am unsure as to whether an RN is able to work in L&D or postnatal areas? I think that one must undertake a Masters program to become a CNM but I would like some experience in this area before I commit to any further study. How do I get into a OB?GYN area without any experience. Do they have programs for 'beginners'? What would I need to do to become employed in this area? Any advice?
