NPs in L&D

  1. I am currently a freshman nursing student and am already considering graduate school. I'm interested in going into an NP program. I'm also very interested in L&D. I was wondering if there is a role for NPs in L&D. Any info on this topic would be great!

    We've never used NPs in L&D in any hospital I've worked at, but we did use certified nurse midwives in the States. It takes about 2 years of graduate study(post nursing). I'm thinking of eventually doing it myself.
