Does this make sense?

  1. Could you for example, be a Labor/Delivery nurse for one hospital, then work prn as a nursery nurse at another hospital??? Does anyone do this?

    If you are willing and able to keep up all the competencies required to work in the nursery, there shouldn't be a problem. We have nurses who work full-time for our hospital then work the minimum number of shifts at another hospital for the big bucks (registry wages.) Some love it, others find it too stressful. Good luck!

    Sure! I work full time in a High Risk L&D (>400 deliveries a month) AND per deim at a level one hospital with <100 deliveries a month...just for the change in tension, atmosphere, and staff!

    Absolutey. Loads of people do it, in differing degrees. For example, an ICU nurse might do ICU at one place, and step-down at another. NICU nurses can do mom/baby and newborn. L&D nurses can do antepartum and often times, postpartum or mom/baby. It all just depends. I say go for it!!
