What helped you in deciding to become a labor and delivery nurse?
I am really interested in a career in nursing. The one branch of nursing that really sparked my interest was labor and delivery nursing. #registered-nurses #pediatric-nursing #pediatrics #obstetrics #hospital-and-health-care #healthcare #medicine
Nursing is a very rigorous field. We are carefully trained in all aspects of the medical field (we really should be called DOCTORS). Labor and delivery is a huge field to learn but very rewarding. You can pretty much work anywhere (hospital delivery rooms, physicians's offices, community clinics, etc). The field is growing (Mid-wifery, Nurse Practitioner, Anesthesiologist, etc). In your semester clinicals, you will get a full view of Labor and Delivery (seeing C-sections live or a live vaginal birth). It is loads of fun with the babies and assisting the mothers. Remember there is a lot to learn. Labor and Delivery is very comprehensive. Study and pass the NCLEX and you are on your way. Good luck and God bless
