I have recently decided that my goal is to become a Labor and Delivery nurse. We are weeks away from submitting our preference for for our preceptorship. My professors have said that they don't usually like to put people in L&D because the narrow range of patients won't prepare us adequately for NCLEX. Is there another area with a broader patient range that could prepare me for NCLEX and becoming a L&D nurse at the same time? I am also interested in NICU and thought that may be a good place to get experience in a similar field. If you are an L&D nurse, where did you precept? I would love to hear any input you may have!
