First Experiences
June 20, 2014

During my internship at Hereford Regional Medical Center, I will be working on major projects which will consist of working in various different departments within the hospital. These departments consist of Obstetrics, Medical surgical Unit, Emergency department, Operating room, and Post Anesthesia care unit. My first experiences at Hereford Regional Medical Center have been awesome! These past two weeks I have been in Obstetrics and the Medical Surgical unit. By far I love the Obstetrics portion of this internship. On the 18th of June in Obstetrics I got to see a patient have a caesarean section which was incredible! I have previously seen one when in high school but I still had the same thrill as last time.  The only thing that was not enjoyable smelling the surgeon burn/cut the skin and tissues. The next day in OB, I was able to see a patient get an epidural and have a natural birth. Just being in OB for 3 days has given me an opportunity to gain so much insight in the OB field; that I know I will need in nursing school and once I am out of school working as a RN. The nurses at the OB department are so experienced it is amazing learning from them. They also are very adamant on allowing me to get involved with patient and baby care. Now that I am finished interning in the OB department, I am excited to see what the other departments have in store for me, I can hardly wait!
