I'm a nursing student with an interest in OB nursing and I've been in the OB section on this thread a number of times but I just wanted to get a perspective from nurses who work in the city and westchester county area. I know it varies by hospital and some hospitals have bigger maternity units and babies being born then others. but I just wanted to get a little info on:
1. If you like the unit you're on
2. The nurse to patient ratio
3. How your fellow nurses on the unit are.
4. For m/b nurses: I researched a lot of hospitals on their process and I know most say they encourage rooming-in. Is it the norm at your hospital? 5. Is cross-training allowed/required/encouraged.
