  1. Wanting to become a Midwife
    You don't need a DNP to do circs or first assist in c-sections. I do both with a master's. There's no difference in scope of practice between MSNs and DNPs. There are certainly benefits to...

  2. Typical Day for Inpatient Lactation Consultant?
    The IBCLCs at my former job (Baby Friendly hospital with ~5000 deliveries/year) worked 9-5ish. All nurses got to shadow a day with an LC so I am pretty familiar with their schedule. They would...

  5. Fully drain distended bladder?
    Not to seem judgmental, but may I ask why a patient was left 22 hours post-delivery without voiding before someone straight-cathed her? She could have ruptured her bladder with that much urine...

  9. Why we do this...
    Glad to read the positivity! I am a CNM, and we try to have as much continuity of care as possible in our clinic, so I see a lot of patients throughout their whole pregnancy. We rotate shifts in...

  13. Walked in on a pt rolling a joint
    Nope, sorry. He is dying. There is no such thing as "enjoying" his narcotics "too much." He is not getting high. He is getting deserved relief from his suffering. I would hope that anyone who...

  15. Nyu should I go?????or Felician
    I went to NYU. It's NOT worth the price tag, period, end of sentence. Huge class sizes, which made them cut down on clinical time. They market the education they offer as superior, but you're really...

  17. Nurses letting other nurses chart on their account
    Off topic, but what a great word, "cyberstomp!" On topic, I'm not sure why the other nurse was WILLING to chart for the first nurse. Strange story.

  23. Offensive Op/Ed About NPs
