An obstetric nurse is a registered nurse who cares for patients during pregnancy, during labor and delivery and post-childbirth. Often these types of nurses are referred to as OB/GYN as they can work in areas such as an Obstetrics and Gynecology physician’s office, inpatient labor and delivery ward, in family planning and private birthing centers along with urgent care and midwifery practices.
OB/GYN nurse's roles vary depending on the area they are working; they provide education on reproductive and sexual health such has choices for birth control and health during pregnancy. In a physician’s office, they provide pelvic exams, prenatal screening, blood and urine sample, and weight monitoring. Where in a hospital environment they provide care for laboring mothers through assessment, monitoring, supporting, and education and also provide assistance to surgeons during caesarian sections.
A registered nurse requires additional training and education to become an obstetric nurse and can become certified in Inpatient Obstetric Nursing (RNC-OB).
