What is so special about working in postpartum??? - page 3

...Because I cannot get a job in this specialty to save my life! I rarely see any job postings for PP in my area and when I do they want experience ofcourse. I've spoken to a few PP nurses and they all have been working in PP... Read More

    I just finished my BSN and am waiting to take my boards. I just applied to the hospital where I had my 3 boys, for a PP position that hires new grads. (I am an LPN with 6 years LTC/ 1 year HHC.)

    I am going to call the HR and find out who the hiring manager is. Any hints/tips on interviewing, especially since I haven't passed my boards yet? Would it seem to pushy to go to the hiring manager? I'd also like to cross train in L&D, should I mention that, also?

    So glad you got on! I was going to pipe in and say there's really nothing special about PP. Except for the fact that it is low turnover so not as many openings. Plus, it's a fairly "desireable" unit so when the openings do come up there's lots of competition. But I am glad you there! I FINALLY started L&D about six months after years of trying and I love it too. It's intense, I feel like a new grad all over again and there is just so so much to learn. But I look forward to being there and I don't have that I don't want to go to work tonight" like I used to. :-)

    I am a new RN graduate and is set to begin working on a PP/Peds unit. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I loved working on the PP floor during clinical. I have read under other discussion topics that postpartum nursing is boring and made for nurses who's ready to retire. With that being said, anxiety arises for me because I want plenty of experience such as starting IVs, caths, and so far. Can anyone tell me about their experience as a PP nurse? Thanks in advance!
