I am not a new nurse but thinking about OB

  1. I am so tired of Med Surg. I have been a nurse for almost six years now and I have always had an interest in OB.....Do they typically provide extensive training? Any suggestions on were to start sine I remember next to nothing form school? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi! I'm a new nurse who has been working in post partum this year. I have been told that this is a great to start becuase it allows you to know what "normal" is. I eventually want to work in NICU or L&D. I have enjoyed every single day in post partum. It is the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life, we typically have 3-4 couplets (moms and babies) and do everything from breastfeeding teaching to venipuncture and blood transfusion. I don't think I could last 6 minutes in med surg, congrats for 6 years! If you choose OB I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!
