  1. Random CNA skills questions?

    I am located in NC and I take my exam in Kanappolis Friday if anyone has tested there?! I can tell you the answers in the book I have, which is based on averaging the statewide standards. But here are a couple of my questions I hope y'all can help on...
  2. dealing with the death of a baby

    Midwives, have you ever lost a baby? If so, can you describe that experience for me? Being a midwife is flowing through my veins, but I am concerned about the emotional aspect of losing someones baby. Helps? Thoughts?
  3. I think the title pretty much says it all...does anybody know?

    Hey people...how did you PAY for your accelerated BSNs?
  5. Please help me. I am so frustrated. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and I want to eventually become a nurse midwife. I keep trying to come up with ideas to do this but arriving at financial potholes. I live in the state of Michigan and for p...
  6. shaky hands?

    Hey! I've posted in here for awhile and thought about going into nursing once I get my undergrad degree in psychology. I have problems with regulating blood sugar at times; I have to eat every 3-5 hours (at the most!) or I wil become very shaky, naus...
  7. rehabilitation in the NICU

    Hi! I'm an undergraduate student with a psychology major. I haven't been sure of what I wanted to do and I ended up on this forum because I was interested in nursing. Reading about the NICU in this forum, something about this work has really caught m...
  8. First Assist in OB Surguries

    Question! As nurse midwives, do you get to be the first assist on C-sections that are done on your patients? I'm interested in nurse midwifery, but I HATE the idea of having to abandon my patients should they have complications. I also think it would...
  9. On Thursday my Grandpa called my Dad and said he needed to go to the hospital because he didn't feel well. We decided to have an ambulance come for him so that EMTs could watch over him on the trip to the hospital. Upon arrival a CAT scan found that ...
  10. Crazy hours

    I'm very interested in being a nurse in the neonatal field, but I can't quite figure out how you guys cope with the bizarre hours. Working 12 hour shifts at night seems difficult on anybody, especially someone who is a mother with a family, ect. I'm ...
  11. Hardest things to deal with in NICU...

    Thank you for the info. I am interested in providing family support/mental health, maybe in the form of a support group or something, if I ever become a nurse.
  12. Please help!

    I will try to help, but take what I say to do with a grain of salt, as I don't even have a full rubric to go from. Ok, so lets say you want to write a paper on why nurses are so important in a hospital system. There are many things you can say about ...
  13. Hardest things to deal with in NICU...

    I would really, really like to know who is responsible for mental health/family support in the NICU. I am not a nursing student (although I am considering it), but I am a psychology major with an interest in mental health. I also have a particular in...
  14. The bad stuff

    Thank you guys so much for telling me your experiences and stories. I'm definitely going to be shadowing at my local hospital's NICU when I go home this summer so I can see a bit first hand. Overall, it sounds like an amazing field, but a difficult ...
  15. The bad stuff

    Hi. I am a senior in college about to graduate with a psychology major. I've thought about nursing for several years, and just recently I've thought a great deal about neonatal nursing. I do have some concerns, however. I am a very sensitive person, ...
