Summary of Internship
My internship takes place on the Mother-Baby unit of Englewood Hospital. Every Thursday I go to my assigned floor to perform simple tasks such as making new cribs so that when newborns come from the Labor and Delivery area they have diapers, blankets, washcloths, and the other amenities they will need during the time the nurses keep them. The nurses on this unit are eager to teach and encourage me to ask questions about anything I do not understand. I have a chance to get familiar with medical terms I learned in my Medical Terminology class as well perform simple tasks that I would need to know in order to care for a newborn baby if I were to pursue this career.
