Since most of you are career-nurses, I feel this could be the proper place to post my questions about where to begin!! I'm really interested in being a labor and delivery nurse. I will have my bachelor's degree soon, although it is not in nursing, so I plan on getting my associate's degree and taking the RN licensure exam. What type of nursing work does this qualify me for? Would I be able to work in labor and delivery (or even ob-gyn at first, if it could lead to labor and delivery work) with this type of background? If not, what would I need to do? Labor and delivery would be my ultimate goal - so can any of you experienced and friendly people here help me out?
I have no idea where to start, so I figured this is as good a place as any!! Thanks a lot.
