  1. Price of Patient Satisfaction
    I actually had an assistant nurse manager who read some book called (no joke) "If Disney Ran Your Hospital." She completely drank the Kool-Aid and thereafter referred to it as if it was some sacred...

  2. Applying for job 6 months before graduating?
    I think it's too early---not like anything terrible would happen, I think you will just get a lot of responses telling you to reapply around or after graduating.

  3. Out of hospital Midwife?
    Well, for starters, I don't think you should even THINK about the possibility of going into solo practice in an OOH setting as a new grad. It's simply not safe. You need at least a few years of...

  4. Out of hospital Midwife?
    I don't think we have any regular posters who are OOH CNMs, but maybe some will pop up. I did my integration in homebirth so I know a bit about it (specifically in the NYC area). Don't know if...

  5. Bedadine for vaginal birth
    We don't use any prep, except wiping away any stool that's passed while pushing. There's no evidence behind it.

  6. Cra Cra co-workers
    OK I think this takes the cake! When I worked in Mother Baby there was a CNA from L&D on nights (aren't they always on nights???) who was almost blind, almost deaf, and a religious fanatic. They...

  7. Babies on a plane!! (and also cord clamping)
    No, it's not the case. You don't need to tie off the cord if the baby is vigorous and healthy, and you don't need to worry about the blood going "too much in any one direction" (I would brush up on...

  8. ixchel's 8/15 This Week I Have Learned...
    Never done this before, but they're always fun to read... I learned that moving is exhausting (duh!) I learned that moving into a three-story house after a lifetime of living in one-story...

  10. Late arriving Nurses
    A little late here, but I'd like to take a timeout to thank you for quoting Designing Women, one of the most awesome shows of all time. Also, I agree with everything you just said.

  11. CPM VS. BSN
    Yes, this is pretty unfair. Hospital birth does not equal a lack of evidence-based practice. Many times it does, but there are great institutions out there keeping birth safe for women who need or...

  12. Overweight
    My issue is that I'd like to lose about 5-10 lbs., but I don't have a whole lot of vices to eliminate to lose those quick few pounds right off the bat. I'm 5'9", and was always between 125-130 lbs. ...

  13. Interested in Mother/Baby...thoughts?
    I agree that it is strange to tell an ED nurse that the juggling involved in Mother/Baby nursing might be too much for them! Mother/Baby is very busy but nowhere near the stress and adrenaline rush...

  14. Early Release of Mom's and Infants
    So then I'm confused as to why you state people who want to leave the hospital early should have opted for a birth center or homebirth, if being sent home early is so inherently fraught with danger.

  17. CPM VS. BSN
    queenanneslace and cayenne---curious about the pay for a CPM. You've mentioned that it's not really a good living. How much did you generally find CPMs charged each patient per birth? Was it less...

    Ultrasound is within a midwife's scope of practice. There are ultrasound certifications available, but I know midwives who were trained on the job and then credentialed by their institution when...

  19. Ultrasound midwife
    This is an American website so I'm not sure how much traffic we get from foreign midwives. Perhaps try the international fora of Midwifery Today?

    Yes, she was a very kind woman but a fairly terrible program director.

  21. Advice for the Student Nurse Midwife
    I felt like my program director was so invested in the idea of growing the midwifery profession that she let anyone with a pulse into the program, and was extremely lax with deadlines, grades, and...

  22. Abortions performed in APU?
    You're right, I think I was the one who misunderstood. Still, I've never seen the antepartum nurses have to get involved, just the regular ambulatory surgery/PACU nursing staff.

  23. Abortions performed in APU?
    I've never seen abortions performed on an antepartum unit. Where I work, which is a small teaching hospital, they do all the abortions, from very early aspirations to as-late-as-legally-possible...

  24. Advice for the Student Nurse Midwife
    I wish I'd known how dysfunctional my midwifery program was going to be, because I probably would have gone to a different one. But it all worked out in the end. I wish I'd had more experience with...

    CNM
    Yes that's how my job is. There are 2 midwives on L&D at all times. We cover in 12 hour (or rarely 24 hour) shifts, and we take care of the patients that come in during that time. The patients see...
