My experience in L&D was rough at first but it became increasingly better over time. In my case, I think what made things so hard for me was that L&D and post partum were actually my first clinicals in nursing school. I think these two areas are a tough place to start, however, if you have previous clinical experience in Med Surg, I think L&D will be much easier. Honestly, I'm glad it's over though and now I'm getting ready to begin Med Surg I. Good luck though. I'm sure you'll do great.
