hi! i am 23 and a mother of 2. (5yr old. & 6 wk. old). i want to work in l&d desperately. i am considering becoming a lpn, i know my hospital hires lpn's in l&d b/c i called human resources and asked of course she said the hire rn's before lpn's. and also one of the nurses at my daughters delivery was a lpn and she was so much sweeter and caring than the other nurse whom was a rn. my husband is supportive of the idea he's just worried that i can't get a job in l&d. we aren't financially stable right now for me to become an rn. this is something i really want to do. can someone tell me the differences of what a lpn can and cant do in l&d. and p.s. what is an ob tech?
thanks to anyone who has some advice.
