    Major metropolitan area: NO. Not sure of outlying areas. Both are considered specialty areas and because of all of the medications involved...

    Most hospitals don't hire LPN's in Labor & Delivery. Luckily, I got a job on an L&D unit at a local hospital but the job outlook for L&D LPN's is not very good. I'm presently working on my RN so it's not really an issue for me.
