Need help for clinical project!

  1. I am in my last semester of an ADN program, and just started my OB rotation today. I need some help in finding info for 2 required assignments

    The first is a 3-4 page research paper on ob conditions (gestiational diabetes, placenta previa, etc) and the second is a poster inservice for the OB unit...........does anyone know a good resource to find info other than my OB textbook? Also, any ideas for the poster inservice would be welcomed.

    You all are wonderful people who assist with bringing new lives to the world each day, and any help would be appreciated.

    AWHONN, the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses, is the standard-setting body in nursing for OB. Lots of info available. They have a website. Do a search on AWHONN, it will give you the link.

    try www.google.com

    or: www.awhonn.org

    you are fortunate; you have an unlimited information base out there to explore. This was not the case when I was doing my OB case studies and care plans. I had to hoof it to the library and spend hours pouring thru a poor selection of OB texts. Use that search engine, the AWHONN site, and a bit of imagination and you will make out ok. good luck finishing this assignment.

    If you have access at your school to WebSpirs (I think I spelled that right) you can type in anything and literally get tons of articles hits, I had to do that kinda thing last quarter for OB and again this quarter for community health, and webspirs just helps me kinda see whats out there in the recent research and see if anything peaks my interest...good luck!

    So true, SmilingBlueEyes...Remember when all we had was a limited supply of info in the school library and then, only if you were among the first few to get there and sign it out? Man, the papers we could write now a days....But then, I guess that is surely showing my age!

    rofl I already have, mother/baby. Oh well. They just don't know how good they got it; to be able to come to an all nurse website and ask for help w/homework. it sure is nice.

    Who of us "older" people recall that you somehow irrationally felt better no matter how behind you were on a project even if it was an hour before having to submit it, as long as you found SOMEONE more behind than you! Those were the days.....We of the era of 2 day nursing, non computerized NON air conditioned nursing boards......

    Apparently, I was so overcome with nostalgia, that I somehow managed to once again, double post....
