Want to be a L&D nurse....

  1. SOOOOOOOO BAD!!!! Im so jealous of you all. I hope I can do it. Im planning on going to a community college to take the classes I need. Anytime I talk to anyone about it they're always like its VERY hard. Which Im not expecting it to be easy, but they say it like I cant do it. My cousin is in nursing school right now and we're planning on talking one day next week about it. She said it's intense but she loves it.

    When you get out of school, just make sure you look for an internship in L&D. That way, you will be the most prepared.
    Even after the internship, most nurses in my internship group took about a year to be "comfortable".
    It's definately worth it though! It's very rewarding, and you can positively impact the most important day in a mother's/ family's life.
    You can definately do it! Best of luck to you!!!
