    Frustrated

    Thank you both for your advice. I'll definitely keep trying. I'm being inpatient and I know I will eventually get it. We have new OB residents and some of them want the nurses to check after them. I would hate to have the resident check, then I check, then a more experienced nurse check after me. I haven't run across that issue yet but I'm sure it will happen eventually.

    Frustrated

    Hello all, I've been working as a new nurse in L&D for 9 months now and I'm still having trouble with vaginal checks. It's so frustrating for me. I've called a patient compete when she was 5cm on 2 separate occasions. I don't always have a nurse to check after me because our floor can be extremely busy and we are sometimes short staffed, epecially on nights. I've gotten advice from my coworkers, but nothing has really helped. I've even watching YouTube videos and and read numerous blogs and forums. I don't know what to do any more. Half the time I can't find the cervix and if I do I'm unsure abovut what I'm feeling. Before I got off of orientation, I expressed to my preceptor and my educator that I don't feel ccomfortable with my checks. They both shrugged me off and told me I would "get it" eventually. I feel like an incompetent nurse because of this. Any tips, tricks, advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Not sure, I was wondering the same thing about L&D. I was thinking about calling the unit asking, but I'm not sure if that's professional.

    Nope, I haven't heard anything new. I'm hoping we get more information in the beginning of October. What start date were you given?

    I'm sorry to hear about your job difficulties. TMC/Children's, Memorical City, and the Woodlands are all magnent hospitals and do not hire ADNs frequently. The other locations do hire ADNs. I know for a fact that Southwest and Southeast hires ADNs. Unfortunately, nursing is super competitive right now for new grads because of the high number of graduates. Good luck!

    There aren't any Houston hospitals that cover 100% of medical insurance. The hospital that comes close is MD Anderson, but they only cover health insurance for the employee, not family.

    Same! I know different departments start on different days, but I would love to start early October.

    Anyone else get a phone offer from Children's but haven't received an official offer letter? I've called and emailed my recruiter and haven't gotten a response back.

    Ok, thank you! Since they are behind, I will wait until next week to contact them. If I get an exact start date, I'll post it here for you.
