    My son was born with GBS but my swab was negative. I didn't have any fevers during labor. I possibly was leaking a few days prior to my induction. Amminosure and ferning were negative so I was sent home. AROM was less than 18hrs. My placenta patho showed no signs of infection. My husband and I are trying to figure out how are son got sick. Thanks!

    nurses/student nurses who have done externships?

    I did a summer externship at UIC before my senior year. I also worked there on breaks. It was an amazing experience. The only thing I wasn't able to do was pass meds. It really allowed me to hone my physical assessment skills. I highly recommend a summer externship. Any questions, just let me know.

    Hello- I will be doing my summer externship at UIC. And I was wondering about the parking. I'm pretty sure that I will have to pay. I was wondering if anybody knew if I would get some sort of discount and what the cost might be? I'm trying to figure out if taking the train will be cheaper. Thanks!
