Ok, tomorrow is my big day as a new RN! I start my first day on the floor beginning with L&D.

I'm very excited but a little nervous as well. What can I expect? Tips? Advices?

Congrats on getting a job and getting one in the area you wanted! Don't be afraid to ask questions.

Be open to learning more than you ever learned in nursing school!


I am sooooo jealous......I am a nursing student and I hope I can work L&D! I hope you enjoy it very much and congratulations.

Well, how was it? Hope it was awesome! Congrats on the new job!


Specializes in L&D. Has 4 years experience.

When i graduated nursing school, I got a job on L&D. Been here for 4 years now and love it! It was realllly rough the first month because I couldn't even start an IV on a pt much less a vag exam.Hope it went well.


Specializes in Cardiac.

All I can say is congrats. I will try not to be too pessimistic about all the new grads around here getting into L&D....

Congratulations. I start my nursing clincals in January and I can only hope that when I graduate I get a job in L&D. It's my life long dream. After having four children (one of which was in the NICU for 2 months) I have wanted to help other mothers through this miraculous time. Congrats.
