I graduate this coming July (if all goes well).
Today I accepted a position on the L&D unit. This is actually a rotating position...all the nurses rotate through L&D, nursery and post partum. I orient for 4 months so that schedule will be a little rough since I have little ones at home. The orientation isn't always done on your shift so those 4 months will be a variety of shifts from what it sounds like. That will be very rough but it's like that pretty much everywhere so we have to deal with it.
The shift I accepted...3 12 hours shifts per week. The weekends...every 3rd. I'm doing 7p to 7a so there's a nice shift differential (they do a percentage of your pay...not a flat rate so that will be nice down the road).
I'm very excited to have landed a job as a student on L&D and for 3 12 hour shifts.
