    Being that I am not a new grad, I do not apply for everything. I only apply for the area(s) that I am most interested in. I have worked in a variety of different areas, so I know what I am looking for. I applied to Labor and Delivery, Nursery, and Peds. I have worked in all adult settings and have never been happy in any of these areas. I have gotten to a point where I will not apply for positions that I know I will not like. I know, beggars can't be choosers, but why do something that is going to make me miserable. I have been in the health care field for so long, and you get to a point where you just get sick of the same crap all the time. I went into nursing to work in NICU. This is the area that I LOVE and am most passionate about. So, adult care does not do it for me. I have done that area for so long that I absolutely hate it!

    Good luck to you!

    I think the problem with that in this area is that there aren't tons of jobs and so a lot of people 'slide' into the network on med -surg and then transfer over. good luck

    Mercy in Janesville, does have a Labor and Delivery job posted right now, cross training in Post Partum.
    It is nights though, 36 hrs/wk, so guessing it would be 12 hour shifts.

    I have applied for those positions at Mercy and never get a call or anything from them. Plus, as much as I would love to work in this area, I don't have any "experience" so am not usually chosen for interview. I have worked night shift for over 10 years, so that's no problem. And personally, when it comes to OB, I would rather get the experience in all of the areas of OB/LDR/Post Partum/Nursery. I think that all nurses should get this experience in this area. When I delivered my son, I had the same nurse for Labor, Delivery, Post Partum, and caring for my son. Thanks for the info though. I wish that I could get a job in this area!
