    When I try to remember what was important to me as a 15-year-old sophomore in High School the gel on the ultrasound question doesn't seem so far out there. In fact, her question is making me miss...

  2. CNM or OB-GYN?
    "Midwives out there-did you ever consider going to med school?" I did. But medicine and medical school had little appeal to me. I was not focused and driven to "make money." And the medical field...

  4. The current state of advanced practice nursing education - thoughts
    I've been enrolled in a number of advanced practice nursing programs, I've left them because they were woefully inadequate in the realm of academic rigor. At first, I'd thought I'd enrolled in a...

  5. CNM or OB-GYN?
    This is an odd choice of boards to ask your question "Should I give up my dream and become a nurse-midwife instead?" I have only wanted to be a midwife, and becoming a midwife didn't mean I gave...

  6. CNM Job Prospects/Research
    Many CNMs have to create their positions in new markets. Sometimes this goes swimmingly, other times not. I believe there is market potential and demand for CNMs in the future, but not without a lot...

    I work in a small, regional hospital that does not have 24/7 OR staff. Our policy is to have OR staff in house during a TOLAC. I can't imagine (well, I can imagine!) having the OR staff at home...

  9. The best excuses for positive drug screens
    We cannot test a woman for drugs without her consent. She always has the right to refuse. And I don't live in Colorado. We can - and do - test newborn urine and meconium without parental consent.

  12. is going straight from ADN to a CNM program a bad idea?
    Taking this route is not much different than graduate entry to RN/MSN/DNP for individuals with non-nursing Bachelor's degrees. It is a very steep learning curve, though. Only you can decide if...

  13. Nurse Midwife Programs - Good job outlook?
    Many opportunities for CNMs need to be created. Many new CNMs started the first midwifery practice in their community hospitals. Yes, there are some jobs for CNMs, but you may have to re-locate for a...

  16. Quantifying blood loss (grrr...)
    We call the "pouchy thing" the "under butt drape" - probably not the correct term either. Is it only the initial blood loss that needs to be weighed? Or is it all blood loss over a certain period...

  17. Yale GEPN vs BSN + Frontier for CNM

  20. Cytotec for IUFD
    Eek. There are a few local practices that will use cytotec 800mcg for first trimester missed ABs and even early second trimester losses (before 20 weeks). But at term? That seems all wrong. And not...
