    Hello All,

    I do not have any new nurse woes yet since I have not started my first job as a nurse. I am in the midst of the hiring process for a job in an L&D unit in a teaching hospital in NYC and I wanted some advice, tips, etc. for nurses who are in their first year on a L&D unit.

    Thanks and best of luck to all. You will make it past your first year.
