I am starting an RN program in Feb. And I really really want to be a labor and delivery nurse. Does anyone know of anything I can do in the mean time to better my chances of getting hired as one out of school.

Hi, I am not interested in becoming a L&D nurse but I am the same way. I tend to look several steps ahead even though I have not completed step one. For instance I am finishing up my pre-reqs for the RN-BSN bridge program and I have yet to be accepted into an ADN program.
Anyway, here is a forum that might be able to answer your questions. If not, they can probably point you in the right direction. Congrats and have fun in nursing school

The link from MBA2BRN would be good reading. To learn more about labor and delivery, you might also consider some hospital volunteer work in an area related to L&D. Above all though, remember to stay focused so that you do well academically. Also be sure to remain open-minded as you go through school - lots of clinical experiences await you and you are likely to change directions a time or two.
Best of luck to you!
