Nursing Journal Entry #8

It’s been another amazing week in labor and delivery. Monday, it was dead, all day until about 14:30. My preceptor said that I could go home, and just do the rest of my hours another day. And then, the phone rang. I answered, OB this is Cassie. The midwife on the other end of the line said she had a labor patient on her way in, ruptured membranes and contracting every 2 minutes.

Needless to say, I stayed until 1900 as scheduled, sadly she was only 4 cm dilated and having her first baby, we weren’t expecting a delivery anytime soon.

I have some time between now and don’t go back until the 19th. Very exciting!
