I know I've said this before, but I'm always learning. Whether it is in my clinical rotation, or at my L&D RN position, I always learn something new. Always.
This week, I had my first day with a second midwife for clinicals. I learned so much!
1. I like electronic medical records. Especially when the program is very user friendly. 2. I like doing annual GYN exams. You meet a lot of very interesting and diverse women/clients. 3. How to remove an IUD 4. That a lot of women use birth control pills for birth control. A LOT. 5. Speaking of birth control pills, I have so much to learn about them. So many different types, dosages, names, uses. 6. Don't be afraid to kneel on the floor to find a cervix during a speculum exam (words of wisdom from an MD friend). 7. It is definitely possible to do a thorough H&P in less than 10-15 minutes. 8. Electronic prescription programs are da bomb! Click, click, send! 9. There is more than one way to skin a cat (figuratively, not literally).
