Hi, I am a new grad living in Florida and I'm really interested and passionate about working with mothers and newborns.
What is a typical day on the unit like? Is there any specific qualifications that one needs to work in postpartum? Also what is the pay/hr for a new grad working on a mother/baby floor?

From the OB nurses I just talked to, they usually do prefer you to have some prior experience in another dept so you know how to handle patients, medications, and get a rapport with all types of patients. The soonest one of those nurses got into OB was after a year of experience in the field, but, as people have stated on here, it does happen from time to time right after nursing school; those ones are lucky!
