    NurseJBM- they actually called me because my email was incorrect on my resume! earthmama3- You just took a couple extra classes? I believe I was told I could get my BSN then reapply as an only option... CONGRATS LADIES! I'm so happy for you and wish I was joining you in June. Good luck :)

    Well....I'm out ladies. Im completely devastated my GPA was not a 3.0. I had no idea. I'm sure I was probably the last app reviewed so, good luck to the rest of you!

    Sent my app in last thursday!! Im hoping we wont have to wait too long. Do you know how we find out? Letter, email, phone call? Good to hear how midwive friendly Michigan is as I'm from Ohio. Michigan would be doable for me, although I too would like to see more free standing birth center. Has always been my dream to open one! Hope to meet you all. June 2nd isnt that far away!

    Its true! You dont need l&d experience. Definitly not patient centered at least in my experience. Quite barbaic actually... Is NY midwife friendly? I hope to meet you all as well!

    L & D Preceptorship Tips??

    Aaah,brings me back. I dod my clinical preceptorship in L&D almost 2 years ago. I just recently accepted a job on that very same unit! Things move very quickly. Remember to jump in there and help out wherever you can. There will probably be alot you don't know. But you can always hold a leg during pushing,get water, blankets, support for the parents! I would sit down with my nurse after the delivery (when there was time to talk) and ask my questions. Why did you do this? What should I tell the mother if this happens? What should I do if this happens again? etc.. My preceptor would try to let me feel cervixes on our epidural moms, if they were willing. That way they could not feel what I was doing, since I really didn't know what I was doing! Have fun and ask lots of questions, show your interest. Make a point to meet the manager! That way she'll remember you if you have a chance to apply for a position.

    Bombed OR interview :(

    Wow, a good way to put it, precedural vs. educational, I never thought of it that way. Thanks, we'll see what happens.

    Question for midwives with small children

    i have been trying to get these answers for a while too...

    Bombed OR interview :(

    So, I had an interview today and it did not go well. I think the main question I messed up was why I wanted to work in surgery. How do you say I like that the patients are asleep and there is mostly NO family interaction, without sounding uncaring? This is what she told me surgical nursing was like.

    Does working in L&D affect your sex drive?

    absolutely! can someone please tell my husband that its not just me then?

    12 hour shifts...3 is plenty

    Im torn. I like 12's because we can self schedule and therefore I can save alot of my vacation time, because I can arrange my schedule to where I get many days off in a row. On the other hand I work nights and rarely get quality time with my kids. I find myself tired and very snippy all the time. I never want to do housework or cook, because i'm the only one who does it! My job is exhausting physically and mentally, so 12 hrs is more like 13+ and by then my back kills me! I would love to work days, but my unit is a nuthouse on day shift and i wuldnt dare subject myself to that madness. I would love to work 5 8's!

    Interview question help please.

    I would definately mention that you would be willing to cross train. Show them your interested in their facility. I think you be be a good candidate and take the per diem if your offered it! Good Luck!
