    A Labor and Delivery nurse is a Registered Nurse with experience assisting pregnant mothers navigate the initial stages of labor, childbirth and the immediate postpartum period. Additionally, nurses that work with pregnant women, families trying to conceive or those that provide general gynecological care can be called Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners or Certified Nurse Midwives.

    Becoming a Labor and Delivery nurse now requires a Registered Nurse license that is obtained through passing the NCLEX-RN examination, plus a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. Within the next few years, any new L&D nurse will have to have a Master of Science in Nursing degree, as well as certifications or experience working within Women’s Health.

    Attending an accredited nursing school, either locally or through an online nursing school, that offers certificates and programs in Women’s Health is your best bet when it comes to finding a career as a Labor and Delivery Nurse.

    To become a labor and delivery nurse you must first get your nursing degree. You can do this by attending a nursing school. There are two degree type you could get to become a nurse. These are an associated degree in nursing (ADN in nursing) or bachelors degree in nursing (BSN). The ADN take 2 years to get and BSN takes 4 years to get either one would work if you wanted to become a labor and delivery nurse.

    After you graduate from nursing school you must successfully pass the NCLEX-RN exam which is how you become licensed. Once you are licensed as a registered nurse (RN) you can apply to a hospital with open labor and delivery nurse positions.

    The proper name is Labor and Delivery Nurse or an OB nurse either one is used in the field. If you want to know how much money L & D nurses make, exact job duties, and complete job description check out the article below.
