Well I am in my 2nd week and so far so good.... just been lots of who does what and what goes where.... Had a few days of home study and things steady at the moment. I know things are going to heat up a bit in the next few weeks and I am also out in community in 4 weeks.... how exciting!! I will keep you all posted as things progress!! :D

Well I am now coming to the end of my 4th week and we go out on our first placement the week after next. I've not had my mentor yet but most are going out on to community.
So far we have covered anatomy and physiology, working on our first trigger (presentation) due Friday, hand wash assessment (practical), moving and handling assessment (practical) due next Tuesday, looked at screening, palpations, baby positions, communication workshop, antenatal and postnatal care, BP, resp, temp, pulse... Its full on and they don't ease you in gently but its worth it!!!

Might be the last update for a little while as have lots going on now but once I have completed my first placement I will be back....
