L&D internship in Tampa/Clearwater FL

  1. Hi! I'm almost 2/3 of the way through my Accelerated BSN program! I'm researching potential hospitals where I can do my 6-week internship towards the end of my program. I'd really like an L&D unit in Florida that is supportive of students and enthusiastic about teaching! (I've had and heard of some unfortunate experiences with preceptors). Preferably, I'm interested in a hospital with a low c-section rate, one that is supportive of breastfeeding, and one with midwives attending some of the births. Morton Plant Mease Hospital in Clearwater seems appealing. Has anyone done an L&D internship there? Can you tell me how the experience was with your preceptor?? How about St. Joe's in Tampa? How supportive is the staff in general? Thanks for your help!!!

    BayCare runs thier own L/D internship at St Joes. It is a 6 month program I believe and only starts once a year. I would imagine they are very supportive.

    Thanks! I'm looking for an opportunity for a short-term experience while I'm still in school (6 weeks). I'll potentially be interested in a long-term internship after graduation too!
