i will be starting my third quarter of nursing school
next week. our focus this quarter is on pediatrics and obstetrics. i will have a five week rotation in the birthing/labor center and another five weeks in a pediatric clinic.
i don't have any children and have very limited experience with new mothers. do you have any suggestions for dealing with laboring women?? i'd love some insider information.
i am looking forward to this area, but i find caring for children daunting, more so than older clients. i know i must be extremely careful and i will probably second guess myself constantly. i love kids, but how will it be caring for those who are sick?
any advice will help. thanks so much.
