Okay, now don't run away with this and think I am pregnant or anything! I just wanted to write about a great experience I had yesterday. For anyone who doesn't know, I am in my 4th semester of the Nursing program. I have really enjoyed it thus far--aside from the fact that they work us to the bone and it's pretty hard! I just have to keep reminding myself that it will be really rewarding someday :)
Each semester we study something different and work in a hospital for one shift a week in whatever specialty we are studying. So far I have done Geriatrics, Medical/Surgical, and Pediatrics.
Well, yesterday I was able to work on a Labor & Delivery floor--and I absolutely LOVED it! I feel like I finally know now why I wanted to pursue nursing in the first place. The birth of a baby is so special and miraculous, and it's amazing to watch new parents just gaze in awe at their new little baby. I also loved just taking care of the mom's while they were in labor--they were so appreciative and I felt like I really helped them in some way! It was awesome.
And not to mention--the babies are SO stinkin cute! So, anyway, great day of clinical--which is rare--and just wanted to share it!
