to give support, give fluid.
Stage 3: the baby is born until the placenta is delivered. This time
need to check the placenta, palpate the uterus.

WAS MEANINGFUL.

The textbook gives me all the information and knowledge from stage 1
to stage 4 in detail. More than that the text book also guide me how to
deal with prolong and complicate labour. On the other hand, the
CLPNA competency gives the big picture about the labour and what
the PN can do within their scope of practice. Additionally, I need to do
a very good documentation in each stage of labour. Therefore, I can
apply them into the future practice and my own personal needed. As a
result, the textbook and the competency works together very well.

DESCRIBE HOW YOU


WILL APPLY THIS
LEARNING IN YOUR
CURRENT AND
FUTURE NURSING
PRACTICE

The rate proficiency for this chosen competency would be excellent.


After reading the textbook, I have the confident that I can apply all the
useful information to the real life when I become a nurse. I believe as a
nurse, you need to have the knowledge about your job and know what
you can do to provide care to the patient safely.

This experiences is playing an important role important for me to use


in my current and future nursing practice. As a student PN, this will
give me the knowledge information to me to have my own experiences
when I go into the labour, and I can give some advises to my own
family or friend. In the future practice as a PN, I can use all the
knowledge that I have learned about 4 stages of labour and apply this
experience to my patient by assessing the contraction, fetus
presentation and position, cervix dilatation, check the fetus, emotion
support a couple. I also need to document all the information about the
fetus and the mother.
