    Same here. If you want l&d just apply to every open position they have unless it asks for 3-5 years of experience.

    Yes, I started in OB (with a brief stint in home health). I actually worked in OB before I was a nurse- I was a birth assistant and childbirth educator, then a Certified Professional Midwife and Florida Licensed Midwife (CPM, LM), then went back to school for my BSN, and am now completing my MSN on my way to becoming a CNM!

    I did 2 years of med/surg before transferring to Mother/Baby and it helped me tremendously.

    I was hired as a new grad into L&D. I also worked for 11 months before graduation as an extern in an LDRP unit.

    Med-Surg for a year before transferring to a LDRP. Really helped with time management and basic nursing skills. Hated it but glad I got the experience.
