Labor & delivery nursing jobs involve care during the antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum and neonatal stages of childbirth. L&D RNs monitor the mother`s and baby`s vital signs during labor birth and manage concurrent health issues.
We accept applications from labor and delivery RN job seekers with an undergraduate degree in nursing. This degree should include training in anatomy and physiology, pathology, human development and treatment modalities. Because labor and delivery nursing jobs are among the most popular specialty professions, advanced coursework is recommended.
L&D nurse salary rates vary depending on location and experience, but according to the 2012 Nurse Salary Survey from ADVANCE for Nurses, the average is approximately $72,500.
