    FNP Program...scam or worthwhile?

    I am in an fnp program and have many friends that are fnp. It's a very versatile degree, and definitely not a waste of time.

    Dear Abby and social induction of pregnancy

    Most hospitals by me only will induce at 39 or 40 weeks unless there's a clear medical reason

    EFM C

    Hi fellow ob nurses. I was just curious. I'm looking to get my EFM C but I was wondering which class you take to get certified. Is it the intermediate or advanced? The few facilities I've worked at haven't required it but will reimburse for getting it so I thought why not :)

    Nurses: How far is your commute?

    16 miles or about 20 minutes full time 3 days a week. Not too bad

    labor and delivery scrub nurse

    I think I felt pretty good about it after my 2nd or 3rd time doing it on my own. It really is pretty easy because it's the same procedure and instruments every time.

    Anyone switch from L&D to MB?

    I am switching from Labor and Delivery to MB. I am very excited to learn something new and for the new experience. I love L&D and I'm pretty sure I'll love MB. I made the switch for different reasons but I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I know I'm unusual since most OB nurses love one or the other. I would love to work in a hospital that had LDRP's. I enjoy the excitement of L&D but the time you get to spend in MB is also amazing. I love the teaching expect and being able to empower and help new families. It's a great area. I'm guessing I will still be pulled to L&D, but I'm really looking forward to my new unit. I hope you will keep us updated on how your switch goes :)

    OB meds

    Nobody is going to want to do your homework for you. We've all been there and I know nursing school sucks but all you learn is so important

    Was It Worth It?

    No I would not change bring a nurse. I've thought about changing careers but truthfully I will never leave nursing. I'm constantly learning. They one thing would change though is that I would not have changed jobs and I left a really good job which if I could have gone back and changed that I would.

    So 39 weeks is the full term cut off now?

    I just want to say I agree with many of the response. I am baffled but the fact that you're an ob nurse and feel this way.

    Labor - how do you organize your day?

    This is how I do it. I write a quick snapshot of info on pt on a little square of paper. Then I go to my room introduce myself, do my assessment then and then go around my room make sure I have everything I need and that everything is set up. I also get things ready that I know I'm going to need eventually. This of course is all my ideal. It doesn't always work that way depending on my assignment or the acuity of my pt. You'll get your flow dint worry
