Visit your local bookstore and read up on the functions/duties/expectations of an L&D nurse. That's your first step. There are tons of books out there on it.

sorry about the double post. I just saw your response on the other thread. did you follow up after you put in the paper application or did they just call you?

Forgot to add- Good luck and congrats! You are the envy of your class I'm sure. L&D positions are hard to find, even with experienced nurses. Harlem Hospital sounds like a great start to your nursing career, imo.
