Recently hired as nurse extern

  1. Hi all,

    I was recently hired as a nurse extern in the PSCU (Perinatal Special Care Unit) of a large women's hospital. I am so grateful for the position and at the same time, nervous! I was trying to think of what I may be encountering with these patients. One of my questions is...will some of these moms be on EFM, continuous or intermittent? I know they are all high risk moms to be. One of the reasons they hired me is because I have a background in lactation education. Now I'm starting to doubt my lactation skills too because its been 4 years since I worked in lactation! I guess I just need to get my confidence up. Any advice?
