My dream job is in OB and that is why I went to school (graduated 2 yrs ago). That being said, I have not been able to find an OB position, and have been working as a float nurse (Med/Surg, Tele, orthopedics, rehab, Peds). I have learned A TON and feel very comfortable taking care of a diverse patient population.
If I could have gotten into OB right out of school would I have taken it? Absolutely.
Looking back I'm grateful for all the real life nursing experience that I have gained, and will fall back on for the rest of my career.
I have an interview for an OB position tomorrow. If I don't get it I will be sad.....but I know I'll never give up.
