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

The great part about nursing school is they expose you to many areas. I know many L and D nurses and it's all they've ever done. They knew right away " this is it". I worked in L and D for 6 months because I thought it was it for me. After 6 months I figured out I preferred the babies not the process of birthing them. Be patient with yourself, you'll figure it out 😊

It is so rewarding to help bring a new baby into the world! The parent's happy reaction is a wonderful sight. However, it is not always fun and happy outcome; things can go wrong and lots of stress for nurses.
