    What does a Postpartum nurse do?

    Hello - I am a new grad looking, ideally, for an L&D position. However, it looks like I am about to be offered a postpartum job with the promise to be moved to L&D once I have some experience. I'm totally up for it, but don't know a lot about what a postpartum job entails. I would love to hear from a postpartum nurse about what their job duties are, what shifts are like, etc, especially on the night shift. I know that hospitals differ, but do the postpartum nurses usually staff the well baby nursery? If there are lactation consultants on staff, do the nurses still help out with breastfeeding? Any info would be so appreciated! Thanks.
  2. Hello to all SUNY Downstate Accelerated BSN alum - I started the program this summer and have been extremely disappointed with the content, professors and administration. I am about to finish the second summer semester and honestly feel like I haven't learned much at all. I'm getting concerned about being prepared to actually work as a nurse after graduation, so I would love to hear about people's experiences in the workplace - are you really behind other new grads? Did you have enough knowledge to start working out of the gate? If not, what did you do to supplement your degree from Downstate? And lastly, did you get enough from this program to comfortably pass the NCLEX? Any information would be great appreciated! Thank you!
