In this community you will have the opportunity to practice the Labor, Delivery, Recovery , Postpartum and well Newborn nursing model hand in hand in with nurses who have over 100 years combined. You will have the opportunity to care for patients through all stages of the childbearing experience as well as their newborns. Many of the women who choose to deliver at our facility have had multiple children with us over the years and we have become familiar with these families from our community, attesting to the definition of community nursing experience.
With regard to experience you will learn or hone a host of skills to your resume. You will not only become competent to care for the laboring patient but the array of care from the beginning of the labor process through the discharge process. You will become familiar with differentiating between the well newborn and the compromised newborn. Since we are part of a larger heath care system and have access to our sister tertiary care center in Corpus Christi Texas and San Antonio, Texas you will have a higher level of care to refer to for those compromised newborns, in order to provide excellent continued care. Having touched on the span of care provided you can rest assured that you can operate with a primary care nursing model as well; this increases patient satisfaction, continuity of care and enhances communication between nurses and physicians.
