Congrats! I'm excited for you! Mind me asking where you live? I can't find one hospital in my area (Pgh & MD) hiring in L&D this early (they're overstaffed from 07 grads).
I'm in a Philadelphia suburb.
The hospital does 3600 births per year and is growing. I think they told me they had 8 openings for new grads...maybe it was 12. Now certainly these could be taken by employees from other departments first. Positions are opened to current employees and when they expire they open to the general public. I go to their school is I have a little priority but they don't give it that much to be honest.
The department keeps growing so they have open spots. It's the main hospital for the area (1 other that some might tell me is up there...but it's not).
I don't know how other hospitals are doing as far as positions.
So the other thing that excites me is that I will be in L&D department with a busy L&D. 3600 per year isn't too bad!
