Is it possible to stay in med surg too long before going OB?

  1. Hi everyone. So I am starting my second job in a med surg/ psych unit. Before that my first job was med surg for 5 months. I obviously want to stay at this job longer for resume purposes. But I really feel passionate about labor and delivery. I figured I would use the time to chew out my BSN and get certified in med surg while I wait for OB.

    So my question is can a nurse stay in a med surg unit too long before they are considered a valuable hire for labor and delivery? How long should I wait?

    I figured in a year I would try to get an appointment with the labor an delivery manager within my hospital organization to introduce myself.
