Nurse2B, there's another possibility you might not have considered as yet (and probably haven't, given your post): you might LOVE another area of nursing you didn't know about before! While you may find that after graduation you still want to go into L&D, you might also well find that there's another area of interest to you first.
It's not unusual for someone to have their heart set on one area, only to find that another area suits them better. And the other way around, as I can personally attest: I had NO desire to go into med-surg, and now that I'm here, I LOVE it! I definitely didn't see it as something I *had* to do; I interviewed for this unit after weighing various options and deciding it would be a great place to get my skills honed (all of what I'd learned in school, and many more). I didn't want to limit my learning just out of the gate, and as it turned out, I learn something new all the time still. Surgical techniques are always changing, meds change and treatments change, and all of this leaves those of us working m/s to be anything but bored
Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there, that what you think you don't want now, you just might, and what you DO think you want, you might decide later isn't the best match for you.
In any event, good luck to you!
