    New Nurse I Don't Know Anything

    Getting into a new grad program is ideal but doesn't happen for everyone. I would suggest looking into volunteer positions where you can work on clinical skills but if you can't get in anywhere because of COVID, then start looking online for case stu...

    Six-month mark. "Is this for me?"

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're experiencing that- it sounds like alot of the other nurses are not being patient or understanding with you and that is completely unfair. As a new nurse, everyone struggles. It wasn't until I was a year or two i...

    SDSU Transfer BSN Fall 2022

    Peds nurse seeking transition to L&D

    Struggling to Transition to L and D

    When I was new to L&D, I thought my preceptors were so mean-borderline nasty because they nitpicked at every little thing I did, I felt awful when I couldn't finish tasks within a certain timeframe or did it a certain way but the reality is that ...

    Thinking of leaving OR for OB (L&D) ?

    The biggest difference between OR and OB is a huge curve in patient interaction. The similarities is that you get to work autonomously - lots of standing orders, you drive the birthing process in most cases depending on how much time you spend ...

    Hey preceptors, how did a student impress you?

    Being friendly, helpful and asking questions as you mentioned sound like great qualities to have. I am excited for you! The most impressive thing a novice nurse can do in L&D world is come prepared with knowledge on the most up-to-date pract...

    Georgetown NP 2022?

    Waiting on a decision as well. It can take up to a month for some, but I have read elsewhere that some people have gotten decisions within a week or two. A close friend of mine got into the midwifery program two years ago and she heard back within 2 ...
