  3. Does abortion play a role?
    Let's not pretend that death isn't an important part of health care, okay? Coming to terms with death has been a huge part of my growth as a health care provider. And let me just say that I get...

  4. Hopeful Someday CNM...
    I second the recommendation to pursue childbirth ed training! It's a great way to get familiar with LDRP practices and to make contacts in the field.

  5. Curious Newbie
    I would try to get some non-hospital birth experience if you can. Look into doula training or see if there is a homebirth midwife who will let you shadow. It's nice to have that backround when you...

  8. Home health Nursing (NJ), QUESTION what SHOULD I DOOO?!?!
    I would be very cautious leaving acute care (especially a desirable specialty like OB). It can be hard to get back into the hospital once you leave.

  13. How do you feel when?..
    Hmm. If this is happening to you on a regular basis, I wonder if the manner in which your instructor is asking might be the issue. Not sure how to address that issue though!

  14. Vital signs charting question
    Yep- the arrow should "point" directly to the numerical value. V for the systolic, upside down V for the diastolic.

  15. Please help!
    Sounds like a valid diagnosis (but I am NOT a nursing dx expert by any stretch, nor do I have the NANDA book). However, is part of your assignment to identify the PRIORITY problem? If so, make sure...
