i was just curious to know your opinions about something. i read the boards all the time, but i don't post much, so to recap who i am: 17 y.o., considering L&D nursing as a career.
i've contacted my local hospital to see about volunteering up there sometime soon. they said something about going through a junior training program because i'm a minor, which i have no qualms about. my question is: with me wanting to go into L&D (or, ideally, LDRP-but if that's not possible, i'd like L&D), would it be adviseable for me to volunteer in L&D, or would that cause more stress than necessary for a volunteer who's still in high school? would postpartum be better? any thoughts on the subject would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much
