Labor & Delivery New Grad Residency

by Jamny Jamny (New) New Pre-Student

Hi everyone ,

Is there a website where I can find Labor and Delivery new grad residencies? I am also interested in mother/baby or antepartum. Hubby and I are willing to move anywhere in the US.

Sending lots of good vibes and health everyones way.

I know Shands in Jacksonville, FL has a Labor and Delivery residency.

SJaae, do you have any more information on the Shands residency? I just looked at their website, and they have a general application for L&D, but it's a bit confusing as to whether it's targeted for new nurses. Is Shands one of those hospitals that automatically enrolls you in a residency once you apply to any RN position?

(I'm in the same boat as OP. I just graduated from UCF, but will travel anywhere for L&D.)


I do not, I just remembered seeing that when I was looking around for a Labor and Delivery position. I lived in Gainesville at the time and remembered how sad I was that the Gainesville Shands didn't have the residency program. I do know the hospitals in Orlando have a residency program for new nurses, but I don't think for labor and delivery, may have to look into that.

Thanks so much for looking into that! I'll keep hunting.

Not sure if you're still looking but you can check St. Joseph's Hospital in Orange, CA. They are under Providence Hospitals and they have a program for new grads and experienced nurses to get trained into a specialty. In fact, I'm starting in their fellowship program for experienced nurses for their L&D unit in January. It's not a new grad program but I know they have had opportunities for new grads before. I would keep them in mind. Good luck!
