What should a new grad know?

  1. I'm a new grad starting an internship in the women's health unit (l&d, pp, nursery, and possibly peds) next week. My rotation in OB was so short and it was mostly observation, my clinical through school was about 90% med surg. OB is where I want to be and I'm so grateful for this opportunity! I'm just curious as to what a new grad is "expected" to know? I appreciate any advice
