I am currently at Adelphi University, about to graduate with my BSN in December 2017 (so excited
). I am interested, long term, in becoming a CNM with a WHNP certificate; or, if I can find some kind of a dual program for the two. I had my OB clinical already and loved it, even though the unit was kind of slow (when I was there at least). I also really loved the NICU in a different hospital I was at for my Peds rotation.
With all of that said, would I be better in L&D or the NICU if I want to pursue becoming a CNM/WHNP? Of course L&D is the best bet, but I figured there would be a benefit in being a NICU nurse considering CNMs do mother and baby care.
Thank you for any responses! I am doing my Capstone in the fall and want to know which area I should consider.
