Hello, everyone. I am a current nursing student with a passion for becoming a L&D nurse after graduation. I live in a very rural community and at my local hospital, there are, on average, only between 12-20 babies born every month at this particular hospital. One day in February there were 9 days in a row with no births! My question is what would the nurses be doing at times when there are no mothers or babies on the unit at all? Thanks for any input.
