I'm still in pre-nursing with a ways to go yet. I'm wondering how difficult it is to get a L&D position? I'll be getting my BSN then I want to get my MSN in midwifery. The program I want to apply to requires at least a year's experience as an RN, preferably in L&D. I'm hearing so much about how hard it is to land any job as a new grad period. And it seems like every nursing student I meet thinks they're going to land a job in L&D. Any advice on how to get into L&D? I feel like I'm being unrealistic.
By the way, I live in Omaha, Nebraska. The nursing school I hope to attend (university of Nebraska medical center), tells us that there's a nursing shortage here in Nebraska. Whether that's true or not, I'm not sure.
