If any hospitals in your area have openings for a patient care tech/associate on an OB floor I think that would be a good place to learn. When I was in my last year of nursing school
I worked as a patient care associate on labor & delivery. It helped me learn a lot about the unit and made me realize even more that L&D is the right place for me in nursing. I just graduated in May 2012 and was fortunate to get a job on the same L&D unit I was working on.
As a patient care associate you don't need any certification, but to be considered you have to have at least taken a nursing fundamentals course. My main duties on L&D were making sure the labor and triage rooms were stocked properly... Running for supplies during a delivery or any emergencies.... Providing pericare and changing the pads and linen and transferring the patient via stretcher or wheelchair... Bringing soiled instruments down to the central sterile supply department... and many other little things here and there. I was also phlebotomy certified by the hospital, so I was able to draw labs.
No matter what... if you want to work in the hospital setting, there is not way of getting around doing some dirty work. Nursing is not a glamorous job. Nurses are always going to clean up vomit, urine, blood, etc. As a PCA, it's a great learning experience for you to see if nursing is really for you. It's a great opportunity to ask the nurses lots of questions and can eventually lead to a job opportunity.
