No Experience Necessary
Question by alejandra Castro: Labor and delivery nurse, education & training.?
Does anyone know their education history? Like, what must a L&D nurse study before becoming an L&D nurse. What are the prerecs… Do you have to start as a CNA then be an LVN then an RN THEN become a labor and delivery nurse ? How long is the labor and delivery nurse training ? Can anyone please give me specific helpful information. It’d be really appreciated!

Go directly and get your BSN. Doing it any other way is like going to New York from Los Angeles and make a long stop in Atlanta.
It is usually for experienced nurses, but it is not unhead of that a “new grad” program may place you there, but I would not count on it at all. (I have known two of my BSN students that got their first job in L*D).
