    Job Interviews/Offers Help!!

    So I'm in my last couple weeks of nursing school and have been job hunting. I recently accepted a position as a mother/baby nurse at a hospital about 25-30 minutes from my house. The hospital isn't huge and it isn't super well known but they are established. Today I got a call to schedule a panel interview at Northside hospital, which is about 45min-1hr from my house. The interview is for a position in their mother/baby nurse residency program (I don't know much else about the program and won't know until my interview). When I first began my nursing journey, I knew I wanted to be a maternity nurse and that I wanted to work at Northside Hospital (I was also born there so I have a "special connection" to them). As I went through nursing school however I learned how hard it was to get on in maternity at Northside in general and that dream kind of faded to the back of my mind. So now that it could possibly manifest for me, my emotions are kind of up and down. So here's my question: Should I accept the position with Northside in their mother/baby nurse residency program if I'm offered it, even though they're much further from my house and it's a residency (basically another 16 weeks of precepting & classes) or accept the position at the other hospital as an actual mother/baby nurse (straight out of school)? Any advice helps. Thanks in advance!

    Types of Maternity Nursing?????

    Hi, this may be a stupid question but I have to ask. I'm in my last semester of nursing school and currently searching for jobs (in maternity). I've always known about L&D mostly, but a lot of applications I'm seeing are for mother/baby and postpartum nurses. So my question, what's the difference between mother/baby nursing and postpartum nursing? Thanks.

    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?

    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 :-)

    TATTOOS!!

    Lol, i asked this question because I've heard from many people saying don't get tattoos if i wanna be a nurse. And i have 1 across the top of my back from my shoulder to my spine. I have one going along my collarbone, and i have one from my lower stomach to the top/middle of my thigh.

    TATTOOS!!

    Hi everyone. So, i have 3 tattoos, but they're in places where you wouldn't know i have them unless i told you. Would they hurt my chances of getting a job after nursing school?

    I didn't get into Nursing School!! Help!!

    Hey everybody. So i'm thinking about going to CNA school and retaking the pre-reqs i need to at the same time. Not sure if this is a good idea, or if it's even possible. Do y'all know? Also, the only 3 Nurse Aide programs i found that are accredited by the ACEN are Augusta Tech, Southern Regional Tech, and West Ga Tech. Does anybody have experiences or reviews for these schools? I ask because i've never heard of them. And last question, because i can't seem to find this anywhere, do you have to go to an accredited CNA program to get a jab? Or can it be state approved? Most all the ones i found are state approved and idk if, when i graduate from the program, the certificate will hold any validity in terms of getting a job.
