  1. CPM to CNM
    I agree with queenanneslace and LibraSun. It can be very difficult to be an RN in labor and delivery. I see some sad, cringeworthy and/or downright unacceptable things at my job. I do my best to...

  2. Suturing
    It's also one of the most immediately gratifying skills to have. While I always prefer to NOT have to suture my patients (I am a student CNM), it is very satisfying when you get everything back to...

  3. CNM Programs at Frontier and Stony Brook
    I don't have any direct experience with Frontier, but I know a bunch of students who are enrolled or have graduated from their program, and alll really enjoyed it. A lot of people have trouble...

  4. Awesome Grand Rounds today!
    We had a guest presenter at grand rounds today- a CNM who has been instrumental in the recent research surrounding delayed cord clamping. We already have a policy that all full term kids get delayed...

  5. Paying for NP school
    I'm taking out private loans and busting my ass per diem to pay for CNM school. However, I did a gestational surrogacy during nursing school to help pay for that. I have a friend who donated her eggs...

  6. CPM to CNM
    OMG, nursing school. My only advice is grit your teeth and try to appreciate the many important nursing skills you will learn along the way. I am not a nurse. I'm just not. I'm a midwife. Nursing...

  7. Suturing
    As long as you are trained and (if applicable) credentialed at your facility, it is well within APRN scope to suture. There are very few tasks that APRNs aren't "allowed" to do. Most everything...

  8. CPM to CNM
    It's a long and winding road, huh? lol! The majority of my CPM class went back to school to become CNMs. That really says something, IMO.

  9. Neumann university is a scam and races school
    Unfortunately, you could be right about that. I wish I had more advice for you :( But if nursing is your passion, you will find a way. We all do.

  10. Neumann university is a scam and races school
    I'm sorry you had a bad experience there :( I will say that it is normal for nursing schools not to round. If 80 is passing and you get a 79.75, you would've been out of luck at my alma mater. I...

  11. Wheelchair use in high school
    Now that I think about this more. . . my daughter has a progressive physical disability, and she used the school chair ad lib when she was transitioning from using a gait trainer to being in a chair...

  12. Wheelchair use in high school
    Hmmmm. I'd imagine you'd need a doctor's order to allow that. But if I was in high school, I can see why I'd want a chair instead of crutches. I can't imagine trying to lug around all those books...

  13. Nursing diagnosis-- what would help?
    I'd like to stop that weird rule that we can't use medical diagnoses in our "related to" section. It'd be nice if the profession stopped trying to pretend that nursing and medicine aren't...

  14. Best way to prepare for new OB job :)
    YES. Breastfeeding support is key. Also maybe look into doula training- it's nice to have the skills to support moms who want to avoid pain medication- having an RN skilled in labor support can make...

  15. Newborn Baths
    The other hidden benefit is that we nurses tend to keep our hands off noobs (or at least wear gloves) when they are still "contaminated" from birth.

  16. CPM to CNM
    Oh boy. I've been there! I went straight to CPM school after high school. Had both my kids in school, so it took me 5 years to complete. Graduated and received a Florida LM license in 2006. Went back...

  17. Outpatient OB/GYN Nurse
    No connections bc I am all the way out in the Pioneer Valley, but I did outpatient OBGYN nursing for a year and I LOVED it. I would still be working there but the 9-5 hours were not compatible with...

  19. unit "culture"
    oh my goodness, this reminded me- when the new group of interns started this fall, we had one shadowing us to observe a birth. She was like 5-6cm IIRC. Asked to go to the bathroom, and of course she...

  20. unit "culture"
    One of the best things about the hospital I am doing my student rotations at (student CNM) is that the CNMs train and supervise the 1st years, so they learn the midwifery way before they move onto...

    Very well said! ALWAYS ASK QUESTIONS. I hate seeing someone try to perform a task without really knowing what they are doing, because they are embarrassed to ask for help. Always seek clarification,...

  22. The Mama Sherpas?
    It's kinda funny, though. . . They featured 4 practices, one or two births per practice. We see a hands and knees breech birth (done by an MD with a CNM assisting), a waterbirth, some lovely...

    What is birth usually like at your facility? How many births do you do and how many providers deliver at your unit? I'm especially interested in second stage management- do all your MDs break the...
