i started my internship in l/d on tuesday. what an experience! i have been working on a gyn floor (hysterectomies, that kind of thing). totally different in l/d!
i have always believed in training by "baptism by fire". however, i am a little hesitant about training in l/d nursing by that belief. i observed a rn admitting & triaging a patient, and when the second couple came in, she said they are all yours. my mouth said, "sure!" my brain went "holy cr*p!"
is this how it should be? or am i just too slow right now? they already told me that i need to write faster.
by the way, i have tons more respect for all of y'all now! how y'all keep it all together, i have no clue!
