Is anyone a nurse??

I am going to college to be a L&D nurse and I'm writing a research paper. I need help picking a topic that has to do with this area of nursing or the NICU. Any ideas?

  • It could be a debate thats going on, a general topic or something specfic... I cant think of anything specific that I am thinking about except maybe How being a NICU nurse actually emotionally affects the nurse... but I couldnt find much on that

  • I have been a NICU nurse for 30 years.
    How about correlation between parents visiting, holding and caring for the baby and length of hospitilization?

    The breastmilk is a good 1.
    Also growth rates on BM preterms vs formula fed.

  • I'm not sure the exact topic but several conversations we've had at work include: when is enough enough for a preemie infant(as in stopping medical treatment and letting baby go) and risk vs benefits for pain meds ( as in giving pain med causes decr breathing and results in oxygen and more monitors and results in lower lung function) just a few

  • Not a nurse yet LOL, graduation is December, but what about the increasing number of c-sections due to failed inductions. The increasing number of inductions done for mom or doctors convenience. I know in my area, that is becoming a major issue, the number of c-sections is unreal.
