Need Help Answering a Specific Job Question About L&D Position

Posted

Hi everyone!

I am a newly registered nurse and a new graduate. I am applying online for Labor and Delivery positions and I've come upon the question: "Do You Have Current Labor and Delivery Experience? - Yes or No"

I successfully completed my senior preceptorship in a Labor and Delivery - that should count as experience in my opinion, but I am not sure.

I am aware that landing an L&D job in Massachusetts is extremely difficult, but I am optimistic.

I think the answer is "NO" in my case, but hoping someone can confirm. Thank you!

Is there a way to clarify your answer, if you were to answer "Yes"?

Hi Dianah,

Thank you for your reply. I wish there was a way. Unfortunately, it's just a simple "Yes or No" question.

The answer is "no." THey want to know if you have experience as an RN. Your senior practicum does not count.

The answer is "no." THey want to know if you have experience as an RN. Your senior practicum does not count.

Agree with Klone. Clinical rotations should be listed on your resume with education but do not count as nursing experience.
