- Jan 16 by SwimNurseRunI just came to L&D after 2 years of tele. (it's absolutely amazing!!!) I think the thing that has helped me the most is a great orientation program on my unit. 14 weeks on the floor and they always offer more time if you feel you need it. Lots of labor support, l&d process, efm, and nrp classes. There is going to be a lot of new terminology, so don't be afraid to keep a list when at work of terms to look up later (or ASK every time!) The skills and confidence gained in tele obviously helped a lot, but get ready to feel like a new grad all over again!!
