  1. Parental Guidelines in Child's Medical Care
    Sure, they could definitely be trained in how to do this. However, it's not an easy skill to keep up when you don't ever have the opportunity to practice it.

  2. Immunization Question??!
    Most people DO get hep b as a child. But maybe you meant to say that hep B was only added to the childhood vax schedule in the mid nineties ( I think????), so a fair number of adults may not have...

  9. Doula Certification/Wanting to be a Midwife
    I would really encourage you to keep searching for out-of-hospital birth experience. I think a big problem with CNM programs is there is little to no education that is specific to home birth, and it...

  10. master in nursing?
    It totally depends on their specialty. I have an MSN Ed and I don't use it in my current job at all, but I needed it to apply for the post-MSN APRN program that I am enrolled in.

    OMG, yes, we used to use butterflies for GBS prophylaxis when I worked at a birth center years and years ago. Definitely less than ideal. That little needle hurts when it is left in place, and it is...

  12. LPN vs RN
    I would go straight for your RN if possible. Especially if you already have a bachelor's. It is hard to get a job, let along make decent money, as an LPN.

  13. Immunization Question??!
    My school would let you do clinical as long as you had started the series and provided documentation when you finished. I would definitely call your director when she is back! It may be worth your...

  15. Sacrifices for Grad School
    Im in an APN (CNM) program, and it requires a ton of sacrifice. I try to work ~24 hours a week, but that is hard in addition to at least 24 hours/wk of clinical and 8+ hours of classroom (more at the...

  16. Opinions on my education plan
    Yeah, I'm not seeing how getting your PA will help you towards your goal of being a midwife. It makes more sense to table that for now, and come back to it after you get your CNM credential, if you...

  20. Pre-med or Nursing?
    I love surgery. LOVE it. As an RN, you can train to be a first assist, and you will get to do a lot of hands-on surgical stuff, not just passing tools. You can suture, retract, suction, cauterize,...

  21. Education in my resume
    Hmmm, I would include it if you did okay in the classes, and add a short explanation as to why you are no longer attending. If you failed out or something, then I would just leave it off.
