  2. Why so reluctant to give pain meds?
    Agree 100% with Esme12. I have never really understood why some nurses do not understand pain control and feel that giving anyone narcotics will make them an addict. Esme, they gave you a hard...

  5. Are these things a CNM would do?
    How is this NOT intolerant? How? I'm sorry if you're disappointed in people's responses. The OP asked for advice about the real world of midwifery. I'm a practicing midwife and a member of...

  6. Are these things a CNM would do?
    If you view my posts in this thread as attacking, you are extraordinarily sensitive. Stating that straights parents are better inherently means that gay parents are lacking. Lesser. Suboptimal. ...

  11. Are these things a CNM would do?
    I'm going to be honest with you, and I don't care if you completely dismiss me. It's very tough to find a position as a new grad midwife right now. Admissions are at record high levels at midwifery...

    No, to call yourself a midwife you need to go through a master's program specifically for midwifery. It is a separate type of advanced practice nursing, different from NPs, CRNAs, etc. Once you...

  17. How old were you/how long did it take?
    My current (and first) job was open a couple of months before I graduated. It was at the hospital where I did my intrapartum clinical, and my preceptor told me about it (I made it a point to keep in...
