Been a member for a while and now that I'm in my second semester of nursing school, feel like I can finally take a few minutes and ask some questions about some things ...
First off, I'm already working post partum as a nurse tech and my NM loves me and wants me to come work there when I'm done with school. My long term goal is to go back and get my Masters so that I can teach nursing school ... short term goal is to get a good job and make some money so that my husband can relax for a while! I do love L&D, PP, NICU and Peds (which is what our closed Maternal Child Health Services includes) but have not made up my mind where I'll go in the end.
However, it's possible that I may be able to start teaching prepared childbirth classes as I've always loved this area and there may be an opening. Would it be smart to get certified through ICEA? Now, I realize there is no fool proof way to know everything, just wondering if this is a good place to get a strong base of knowledge to go from. Any thought?
Thanks for all of your input and for this great section of the board ... I love reading the posts here! Especially the book recommendations ... I love books!
