I am an RN student in my final semester. This semester I will be doing various OB/GYN shifts in the hospitals in my surrounding community. There are several men in my RN class. The male RN's I have worked with thus far have been very skilled in their practice and some of the best nurses I have had the chance to be around. So far in my educational experience, I have not worked in OB/GYN. I am curious to know how female patients in labor respond to having a male RN in their delivery room. I think being in labor and delivering a baby is a very private experience, at least it has been for me when I have had babies. Have you had positive or negative reactions from the female patient when a male RN is present? How have you handled this type of situation? I would love to hear any stories or scenarios you may have had. Thanks!
