For those of you who work in a NICU where a nurse is a part of responding to high risk deliveries, c/s, babies under 35 wks etc.... how long til you felt comfortable attending without another nurse present with you? I didn't receive NRP until I was almost off of orientation even though orientation was a long one. So for the several months I've been there I've only been truly allowed to participate in deliveries since I received NRP which was 3 or 4 month so ago, even though I attended deliveries with another nurse to watch several times prior to NRP. But being the one at the bedside is still different than observing. since I've been off NRP and had another nurse attend with me they've never had to do anything for me, except for once double checking a HR and breath sounds. But I get so nervous even though 9 times out of ten I'm just turning on the start button timer, stimming and checking a HR/lung sounds. As another nurse told me, if anything else is required the doc/nnp will instruct you on what to do. So how long was it for you to attend on your own without the support of another nurse? Is it abnormal for me to not feel comfortable already after a few times at the warmer bedside? I hate how nervous I get! I think it's also more the anticipation beforehand. Thanks!
