I'm a new nursing student, and I'll trying to determine areas where I think I'd be interested in focusing on. I have the opportunity to take "field focus" classes based on the area of nursing that I think I'd like to go into.
OB really interests me, although I think I'm getting some mixed messages on L&D. I've heard that nurses assist in birth and family comfort, and I've also heard that there are nurses in charge of delivery with minimal doctor involvement. I'd love to hear from some of you guys, since you're in the field day-to-day.
What are your main tasks? This probably sounds like a really naive question, but I'd love to get as much information as I can.
I'll also keep reading away on this board, I love it here!
