Hi I'm a high school student and I really want to become a Labor and Delivery nurse, but I'm just not sure how I would go about to doing this. My cousin just had a baby just over a year ago and I was very interested. I want to be the nurse that takes the baby right after it is born. The nurse that show the mothers tasks they will need to know once they leave the hospital. The nurse that is with the babies in the nursery. I'm not even sure if that is a Labor and Delivery nurse. I am going to be signing up for college courses at the the local community college in just a few months, and I have know idea what kind courses I should even think about taking to reach this career goal of mine. If anyone as any information on the what education and experience I would need to reach this goal I would highly appreciate it.
