RN new to OB-GYN


Specializes in Tele, OB, public health. Has 8 years experience.

Hello, I am A RN about to start my 1st job in post-partum.Eventually I will be cross trained in L&D and NICU. I'm excited as I have always wanted to be an L&D nurse, but I am most recently coming from a Tele step down unit, which is obviously very different. Any tips as I transition?

Welcome and congrats on the new job! There are lots of threads in this forum that address this very issue, as it seems to be a common question.

I am in the same boat. Just accepted a job in OB where I will be cross-trained for everything. I have been checking the boards for posts about this for days and have yet to come upon one that is relevant to our situation that is not years old. Hopefully more people will respond.
