I'm going to be a recent graduate (graduate in May - hooray!) and my passion is labor and delivery, or women's health in general. The advice I've gotten over the past few months has been split pretty evenly between working on a med/surg floor for a couple of years before trying to move to L+D, or following my passion and applying for L+D jobs directly. I've decided that I am going to try as best I can to get a job on labor and delivery right out of the gates, but if it doesn't happen it can't hurt to get experience elsewhere first.
Long story short: What I'm looking for are leads to places that are open to hiring new grads in labor and delivery. I'm willing to relocate anywhere - it's almost impossible to get a new grad position in labor and delivery in Columbus Ohio, and I know that. Does anybody have good leads on hospitals, cities, or even states where I might find more luck?
