I am currently a med/surg nurse and just very burnt out of floor nursing. I have a 5 month old and have absolutely fallen in love with learning about breastfeeding and helping my friends who have had children. I had the most incredible experiences with my lactation consultants. I'm looking into becoming a IBCLC but have a few questions:

1) Is the pay that different than being a floor nurse?

2) What is the worst part of being a IBCLC/ your day?

3) Is getting mentorship hours difficult?

4) Do you enjoy your job? Is it very different than floor nursing even if you work in a hospital?
