So I had been a registered nurse on a medical/surgical floor for two years. I just started my second day of orientation on a high paced labor and delivery unit and I am so stressed out and overwhelmed. I love ob/gyn and delivering babies, but goodness I feel like there is soooo much to learn and so many things to look out for when monitoring the baby's heart rate that I don't know whether I made the right change! It took me a year before I got comfortable on med/surg but now I feel like a new grad all over again. Any advice? In nursing school
my favorite subject was ob/gyn, so it was natural for me to want to go into this. How long did it take for you guys to feel comfortable?
