You need to look at any employer to get local experience and references.

Thank you for the responses. During my clinicals last semester, I was assigned a patient with C. Diff. Initially he was hospitalized and transfered to the nursing home where I had clinicals. The smell that you refer to, is it from their stools? Its kind of weird, but while I cared for him, he never had to use the restroom. He had a foley and whenever I asked if he had to poop, he didn't.
50 and 100ml bags only to be used as last resort. IV push for everything that can be pushed.
And this is in Canada.
Google is your friend. As is the hospital maternity unit. They usually give details of Mums and Tots groups, support groups for Mums of Preemies.
Go forth and do your homework.
I would hate the idea of being distracted by nursing school during that important and special time of raising children.
Nursing school will always be there, your children's childhood will not.
