As our Labor & Delivery Nurse at CHI Health's Lakeside Hospital, you'll guide patients through the labor and childbirth process, focusing on the safety of the mother and baby, with kindness and compassion.
As a nurse in this department, you will have varying roles and responsibilities. You may work in Obstetrics - triaging patients or perform screening exams on walk-ins or you may guide patients through a routine induction and delivery. You'll be busy monitoring the mother's dilation progress while also keeping close watch on the baby's fetal heart rate; providing updates and support to the patient's partner and loved ones.
To thrive in this role, you'll need to appreciate that routine is never routine. We have some wonderful days caring for people through huge milestones in their lives. We also have some hard days; providing care and support to people as they grieve. You must be sensitive and understanding, and above all else, you must remain calm in an emergency. You're calm. You're in control. You're handling the situation.About Us
