Hi All, I am a new RN who really wants to become a L&D nurse, eventually a NP for Women's care. I am having a problem with getting a hospital job let alone into L&D. Are there any suggestions how I go about doing this? I will do whatever it takes. I am currently working for a home health agency that was so gracious to take a new RN and I have been working with them since Feb 2010. Please, Please, Please give me your thoughts

Would you consider taking a hospital job if offered one, even if the floor you start on is not in L&D/OB?
It is much easier to transfer from one department to another within a hospital, than it is to apply for a job and specifically mention that you want to work in a particular department.
Also try to keep track of a few hospitals' "Open Nursing positions" on their recruitment pages.
Good luck. I loved my OB-GYN rotation!
