    Any thoughts about having a baby while in NP program??

    My friend had a baby in her 2 nd semester. When u start out a program , they usually start out with general classes( theory, research, Patho) , so i think it's doable. Clinicals usually don't start till later, and thats the hard part. My baby was 6 m when I started my program .

    Certified Nurse Midwife - Masters degree or more?

    Thank you. I will have a student loan to pay off . I'll have total 60 grand total from bachelors and masters. My minimum payment will be 600 dollars a month unfortunately. The hospital I will be working at did not qualify as a hospital for an undeserved area, even though it's in downtown Detroit! Trust me, it is undeserved lol. There is no loan repayment. Boo. Thankfully I almost doubled my salary from RN to CNM :)

    CNM doing only office/clinic OB/GYN work (no LD work)

    I know of CNM's only working triage in L&D, no clinic, and no deliveries. I would advise you not to start your career not practicing full scope.

    Normal Birth

    Thank you, those are some great questions. It's a start, I don't think anyone is going to want to write a long description, so I need to make these questions pretty much yes or no, or use a likert scale, or maybe even a survey given to the RN's after a delivery to see there thoughts on what interventions they thought were and were not necessary. I did not mean to offend anyone. The midwives named this project "return to normalcy", but I will let them know about some of the feedback I received by calling it "normal birth."

    Nursing Student aspiring to be a CNM

    I have been in ER nurse for 6 years, no L&D experience, and will be graduating in July as a CNM. I'm not going to lie, I had to work harder than my classmates that have L&D experience during clinicals, just cuz I had to learn the basics plus all the knowledge and skills to be a midwife, but it is definitely doable.

    Normal Birth

    Those were the exact directions given to me by the midwives, I was just looking for some opinions on what I can do.

    Normal Birth

    I am a nurse midwife students doing my clinical rotations at a large hospital and busy L&D where most of the women get IV's, restricted movement, no skin to skin, baby gets a bath within 2 hrs of being born..so on. We want to know what the nurses' perceptions are on "normal birth" and what interventions we can do to "return to normal". I know everyone is going to have a different idea on what is normal. So I want to make a questionnaire kind of like a pretest, then do some interventions, then have a post test.

    Normal Birth

    A normal birth is one that 1-Labor begins on its own 2- Freedom of movement throughout labor 3- Continuous labor support 4- NO routine interventions 5-Non-supine (eg. upright, side-lying) positions for birth 6- No seperation of mother and baby after birth with unlimited opportunity for breastfeeding

    Normal Birth

    i am trying to come up with a questionnaire to understand rn opinions on normal birth. i will use it as a pretest, then do some interventions, and then do a post test to see if some attitudes about normal birth has changed. any opinions or comments ?
