Later, when this nightmare has finished, I was asked to proceed to the doctor’s room for further directions. Thankfully, the nurse was so kind and she calmed me down and advised to visit another gynecologist at this center. She gave me her card, and said that she is very kind and humane toward the patients.

Being able to have a chance to watch parental visits, the delivery and postnatal visits, is a great way to put all the steps together. My OB experience has positive and negatives outcomes.

While one approach is not better than another, each approach is situational. It is important as a nurse to interview the patient and family to gather an understanding of their culture, needs, and expectations. The nurse should then assess the entire situation and plan appropriate interventions that would best fit the family and situation that is presented. This allows for a higher quality of care, better outcomes, and increased compliance to support the well-being of the
The motivation to pursue a career in nursing has always seemed to be part of who I am, and some of my earliest memories are of my mom and her grandma, both registered nurses, talking about being a nurse and caring for others. Inspiration from my mom and great-grandmother was complimented by one of the biggest inspirations in my life, my cousin Jacob. I was just eight years old, but still vividly remember Jacob being born and visiting him for the first time in the hospital.
