Martin’s Answer

It's essential that you finish your RN and most likely your bachelor's degree. Success often hinges on being at the right place at the right time, coupled with patience. Nursing can be a fiercely competitive field, so seize the opportunity when a position becomes available. There are various courses available to broaden your knowledge. However, a significant part of your learning will come from on-the-job training as you collaborate with other professionals in the field. Keep going, you've got this!

In order to work in Labor and Delivery in most hospitals, you’ll have to become an RN. You would complete the prerequisites and a nursing program before going in to whatever specialty you choose.

Mary Jane’s Answer

Usually, if you want to become a nurse and intend to enroll in a nursing school, your major will be nursing. You'll complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and take the NCLEX exam to become a Registered Nurse (RN).

If you aren't going to apply to a nursing school/program, I would recommend looking at biology, psychology, or sociology for majors as those classes would be the most useful for future nursing coursework. Many of my pre-nursing students have double-majored or minored in something like Spanish or French in order to be able to communicate with future patients whose first languages are not English, so that's another option.
