I have been out of nursing for about 4 & 1/2 years (with about 1 year med/surg experience), and am working on heading back to work (kept license current but took time off to start a family). I am applying for a position on the Mother-Baby unit and was wondering if anyone could give me advice on how to prepare for it? I have been reading through the newborn and postpartum sections of the Maternal-Newborn nursing textbook I used in school (not sure if it's too out of date - I grad. in 2004) and have borrowed a NRP book from a friend (I will be required to take the course in time if hired). Any other suggested reading material?
I am so stinkin' nervous :imbar I am just hoping the clinical aspects will come back to me (like riding a bike, I guess LOL) but would feel much better knowing I've done everything I can to prepare myself.
