    Ok of course I exaggerate a bit but seriously the level of stress was tremendously less when I made the switch. There are plenty of crazy nights on L&D but for the most part I work with some great nurses and we do our best to help each other out. Now if I work the day shift that would be another story, it pure madness during the day.

    I'm in L&D and antepartum. I've been cross-trained to float to mother/baby and I'm now being trained to float to NICU (growers and feeders only). L&D is my main area, but I don't mind going to the other areas at all because it's gives me a break from all the craziness that is L&D. I'm hoping to take a job eventually where the setup is LDRP - I think that would cut down on the burnout factor quite a bit. I love L&D, but it's SOOOO stressful.
