  1. Debilitating Anxiety

    Oh, and I've never had this anxiety with other non-nursing jobs in the past. In fact, I excelled and was very confident. There was probably a learning curve with those jobs, but never have I had the paralyzing fear and anxiety like I have with nurs...
  2. Debilitating Anxiety

    I have paralyzing anxiety which has caused me to quit a few nursing jobs (I've only been a nurse 3 years), so I totally relate. I am now trying out L&D and feel completely overwhelmed because I never gave any of my hospital jobs a chance... they...
  3. I am burnt out

    With the L and D experience, if you are truly burnt out on hospital you can always go to a OB/Gyn office. The nurses at my Ob's office always seem so upbeat and happy like they truly enjoy their jobs. Then again, I have the best, nicest OB in the w...
  4. I am burnt out

    What's been going on? I'm so sorry to hear this. I thought you were enjoying L and D.
  5. How do you know if you are cut out for L&D?

    Seemerun, although I have a few years of general nursing experience, this is an internship so they were open to hiring a new grad or a nurse who needed a change, like me!
  6. How do you know if you are cut out for L&D?

    I got offered the job! Very nervous and excited! :)
  7. How do you know if you are cut out for L&D?

    Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! lovemyjoblandd, I understand what you mean about med surg giving you basic nursing skills that are so valuable. I guess that's what I worry about a little bit. That being said, the school nurse job...
  8. How do you know if you are cut out for L&D?

    Anyone else have any thoughts or opinions? I guess I basically want to know if this will be similar to my failed attempt at med surg when I was too overwhelmed by the high number of patients to give care to. I know L&D can be stressful, but may...
  9. Yep :) She was actually smiling during contractions! I might have opted for that over epidurals with my three kids had it been offered
  10. I'm not an L&D nurse yet.... (hope to be one soon next month ... but I've been watching labor and delivery videos on Youtube for the past couple of days and saw a woman using what they called "laughing gas" and it seemed like her labor went alo...
  11. How do you know if you are cut out for L&D?

    Thanks! I hope I get the job :)
  12. How do you know if you are cut out for L&D?

    After working over the last year as a school nurse, I need a change. I have a great opportunity to interview for an L&D internship position and I'm very excited about it. I understand that L&D is not all about happy experiences and things c...
  13. How to get a position in the O.R.

    It's not that I hate med-surg, I just don't think I'm good at it. People are good at different things. I have given med-surg a try a couple of times, and I just don't think I can handle the pace of so many patients at once. I really WANTED to be g...
  14. OR Internships, Residencies, Fellowships?

    Thanks! :)
  15. How to get a position in the O.R.

    I'm an RN with a few years of nursing experience, but no floor experience. I haven't even been looked at for O.R. internships here in Texas because I do not have my BSN yet. I plan on doing the online RN to BSN this fall. My question is, do most O...
