  1. Do you have an OB in the hospital 24/7?
    Still interested in getting more input on this! Curious if any other hopsitals out there function like this one. And how the nurses feel about it and where these hopsitals are located.

  2. Do you have an OB in the hospital 24/7?
    Oh AND they actually had a stat for an abruption last week. Luckily on day shift and the OB was there. The baby did not do well and was transferred to a level IV NICU. If that had been night shift...

  3. Do you have an OB in the hospital 24/7?
    What drives me crazy is that the nurse manager and other nurses don't see this as a problem. I guess if it's all you know.... They act like there's something wrong with me that this stresses me...

  4. Do you have an OB in the hospital 24/7?
    I used to work L&D at a large teaching hospital in NYC. We had residents and at least one OB attending physically in the hospital 24/7. If an OB was on call at home for their group and a labor...

  5. C-Section experience count as surgery experience?
    I'm counting on it! I have over three years of L&D experience and just applied for a PRN position in pediatric OR. I likely don't have enough relevant experience for PRN, but the listing didn't...

  7. Travel Nursing in NYC
    I worked at New York Presbyterian Cornell and it's a great hopsital and neighborhood. I was in L&D though so can't give you much other info. I didn't get the impression that ratios were great...

  8. How to become an OB/GYN after receiving a BSN
    I'm confused by the OP. I figure she must have meant midwife right?? As a midwife you'd have the same scope of practice as an OBGYN except you can't do surgery. But in some states midwives can...

  9. L&d/nicu departments common?
    You can also do both, just not at the same time! I worked L&D for 3 years. Now I'm interviewing for a NICU job because I'm also interested in both. It's a level IV NICU. If I get the job I may...

  11. Feeling dumped on as new PRN
    On this L&D unit nurses are always 1:1 with labor patients. Which is nice! And the way it should be. Ideally there is always at least one free nurse at a time to take an admission. Last night...

  12. Feeling dumped on as new PRN
    It was a quiet night. There were 3 or 4 free nurses for most of the shift. Helping in triage or just waiting for an admission. So basically instead of giving the admission/delivery to a nurse who...

  13. New to special care
    Congrats! I know you didn't work L&D long, but just curious how you'd compare it to NICU and why you love NICU more. I've only ever worked L&D but have become burnt out on it and I think I'd love...

  15. Feeling dumped on as new PRN
    Not sure if this is just how this unit treats PRN staff or if it's because I'm the "new girl". But I definitely felt dumped on last night - my first shift off orientation. I work L&D and at the...

  16. Becoming a Working Nurse Mom
    I quit my full time job in L&D when my son was born. I LOVED being a SAHM for the first year or so, but by the time he was about 18 months going back to work started to seem possible for me mentally...

  18. Areas of nursing you would NOT like?
    I'm pretty sure I'd never do LTC, med-surg, an adult ICU, or ER. I've only ever done L&D but am ready for something new. Looking into NICU, Peds, OR (I think outpatient surgery would be a good...

  19. Do you carry around your stethoscope?
    hmmm interesting. Do you think all nurses on your unit are doing the same? Is this how your preceptor taught you? I've honestly never seen an L&D nurse do this as part of an assessment! We...

  20. for everyone to answer
    I do L&D. I love that we're generally 1:1 or 1:2. Our patients are generally healthy. Seeing babies being born is amazing. I hate how stressful it can be. Nothing worse than a baby coming out...
