    Dilemma! Help please!!

    lol I apologize for the dramatics. This is just something i constantly hear "do med surg first yada yada yada", and even worse 90% of my class is in love with med-surg. It's also something that I think about a lot, especially since my class has been doing alot of med-surg rotations lately and we're almost done with the program. But thank you for your advice regardless!! From what i've always heard, they say it's supposed to give you a good nursing foundation, building all the skills you've learned in nursing school.

    Dilemma! Help please!!

    I need advice, badly. When I applied to nursing school I knew I wanted to become a Maternity/L&D nurse. That desire has only increased as I've progressed through my nursing program. I've also learned that I strongly dislike Med-Surg. I'm in my last year of nursing school, precepting is about to happen, and graduation is imminent. So my dilemma: knowing that I hate Med-Surg and love maternity, should I go with my heart and try to go straight into Maternity after graduation? Or should I just do what everyone says you should do and do my "year of med-surg" first and then try and switch over to maternity?

    12 Hour Shifts Issue

    So I have a dilemma. Im having ALOT of trouble getting used to the 12 hours shifts, waking up at 5 sumthn to be to work at 6:45. I love nursing and I know I wanna be a maternity nurse, but my big unwillingness to get up that early and go to work for 12 hours is a loud elephant in the room. But I don’t know what to do or how to fix it. Can anyone give suggestions or advice??

    KNAT HELP!!!

    No ma’am you won’t. You’ll be given a calculator and scratch paper. So you have to know the conversions.

    KNAT HELP!!!

    It's been a while since I took it, but i'm 99% sure you can. There are sections (ie. math, english, a&p, etc). When you're in a section, you can go back and forth between the questions only in that section. Once you leave that section and move to the next one, you can't go back to it and change/look at answers.

    I Dont know what to do!!

    I'm starting with my ASN because my GPA is not good enough to jump head first into a bachelors program, so ASN is my only option right now. But i'm going to get my ASN then go back asap through a RN-to-BSN program and get my BSN. Then i'm going to go from their with whatever profession i choose. But i've shadowed at a couple of hospitals and observed more births than i can count, vaginal and cesarean. I've only assisted with 1 birth that i can remember, but i'm only 22 and i'm not licensed to do anything and i was just shadowing when they asked for some equipment setup & breakdown assistance.

    I Dont know what to do!!

    So one thing i know for sure is that i want to care for mothers during their pregnancies and deliver their babies. Problem is, i dont want to go to medical school and become a doctor or obgyn. So i'm not sure if i should become a CNM, some type of NP (idk which type), or if there is another profession just for that. I'm in nursing school now getting my ASN so i know i have a ways to go, but i want to know my options and develop a plan so i know where to start after i get my ASN. Can anyone help me?? Thank you in advance!!

    CNM or L&D?

    Hi. So, i'm currently getting my bachelors in a different medical field but after i graduate i plan to go back and get my bachelors in nursing. I'm extremely interested in pregnancy, birth, motherhood, and my goal is to be able to care for women pre, during, and postpartum. I also want to be able to deliver babies. My dilemma comes in because, that's really the only thing i'm interested in. So i don't know if i would be better suited in becoming a Labor & Delivery Nurse, a Certified Nurse Midwife, or something else (if there's a profession that specifically does this). I was hoping anyone who could answer could help me please??

    What do CNMs do exactly???

    Can i ask how you've enjoyed being a CNM? And when you got your nursing degree, did you work in a labor and delivery unit for a period of time before becoming a CNM? I'm asking because i'm trying to decide exactly what i want to do. I'm kind of only interested in the pregnancy and delivery and motherhood part, not so much the other aspects of being a CNM so i don't really know if i would be better suited as a L&D nurse or a CNM.

    What do CNMs do exactly???

    Hi yall. So im currently in school getting my bachelors in respiratory therapy. Bu my dream is to be able to take care of mothers and babies through pregnancy and then actually be able to deliver the babies. So I plan to go back and get my bachelors in nursing after i graduate, and then go and get my masters in midwifery. So here's my question: What exactly do yall do?? From the research i've done, i came up with the idea that you're basically OBGYNs without the doctors title. Is that about right?? If not, can someone please explain what is it that we do?? Specifically if you choose to work in a hospital. Also, if anyones a traveling Midwife (if there is such a thing), can you tell me how that experience is and how that works?? Thank yall :-)

    Admissions Essay

    I have no idea how to write this application essay for the program. The question is: How did you hear about our program and why do you want a career in nursing. I have no idea how to start it off, and what to write about so that it still sounds person yet professional and gives me a better chance of getting in. can someone help me please.

    HELP!! Other Options

    So most of you say option 1. That's what i was thinking, because even though I'm horrible at and hate science, it seems like the most direct and logical of the 3. Thank y'all so much!!
