I posted this in pediatric nursing because I couldn't find anything breastfeeding related (I could have simply overlooked it) but I'm finishing up my senior year of nursing school and I want to become a Lactation Consultant (RN-IBCLC). I know there's a licensure exam and multiple pathways, but I'm not sure of how to get the lactation specific education hour requirements and the International exam board states that they do not provide nor endorse any educational videos, institutions etc. Has anyone gone through this process before? If so how did you go about doing it and where did you receive your lactation training to be eligible for the exam? Thanks

Okay, I just went to the IBLCE website and the application process seems pretty straightforward. Do you have specific questions about the process that maybe I could help you with?
Are you hoping to apply for the April 2018 test date?
