I actually start school in the fall to become a nurse so I am extremely new. I really want to become a L/D nurse. I originally wanted to become a CNM but I really didn't want to be on call and be stuck with that HUGE amount of responsibility! Well my question is how do I get there? Is the there a certain amount of work that I have to complete in the other fields or can I focus my training in that direction. (ie, parenting classes, birth educator classes etc...) Has anyong heard of Victor Valley College??? That is where I plan to go. Any and all help would be appreciated. After having 3 kids and having crazy nurses during my delivery I want to pursue this career. I am soooo excited. I can't wait. I have 3 kids, 4 and under and an extremely wonderful supportive husband. It either now or never, so please help me out.
