Hello to all of you lovely nurses!!
What unit(s) would be best to choose or avoid for a 135 hour rotation while 30-34 weeks pregnant?
This is my first pregnancy and I don't know what to expect. I am active, reasonably fit, and practice self-care. At this point I have no reason to expect that I won't be able to fulfill my duties.
My goal is to work in women's health at some point in my career. But before I go there I want to gain more critical care experience to prepare me for emergent situations. Plus, I think critical care and trauma is fascinating.
I want to select an ICU unit for this capstone. If ICU is a good choice at this point, would a certain ICU unit be better (MICU, CICU, Burn ICU, NTICU)? What do you think? What am I not considering? Have you worked with pregnant nursing students and what should I consider?
Lot's of questions.
