L&d And Pp?????

  1. Hello everyone....just curious, can you work in L&D and PP? I am very interested in both areas, and wanted to know if you can only work in one area, or if you can do both...thanks!

    I work at a small hospital and each shift is staffed with usually one RN and one CNA or LPN that do it all......antepartum...labor....delivery....recover y.....nursery.....
    I wish it was different 'cuz my fav is L&D but I guess it is good for the pt because of the continuity of care.

    I worked both at certain facilities technically. But, because L&D takes more training I spent most of my time there.

    I do LDRP both places I work so I would have to say "yes" you can do it. It is done all the time.

    The first hospital I worked at, we worked in both areas (it was a small hospital). All of the others, have the units staffed separately.
