Hello, I'm planning to get a masters degree as a nurse practitioner. I would like to work in labor and deliver and Im not sure if i should specialize in neonatology or obstetrics and gynecology. Does anyone what employers would prefer?? And I have no idea what colleges would offer these specific degrees in Indiana???

I am in the Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) program. I have always wanted to work in labor and delivery, but was never given the opportunity. If you want to work with delivering women, you probably should consider the Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) route. You can also work doing prenatal care as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). There is an FNP program at the Indiana University at Purdue (IUPUI) and a graduate program in nurse-midwifery at the University of Indiana. Most of these schools will have distance options where you can take classes via the internet and arrange clinicals in your own community. Good luck with whatever you decide!
