... Ob/Gyn nurse sounds like a fun job. I remember when I worked as volunteer in a hospital when i was in high school and gave milk to so many babies for the first time in the nursery. It was really nice. I always wanted to see the birth of a child live but everytime i made friends with the doctor he was changed so never got to see a birth. I never thought of nursing in my country... (6 replies)

... I am an OB/GYN nurse. I love it!!

For the most part, you get parents who are genuinely excited to be having a child, and... (6 replies)

... First, most hospitals require a RN license to work on the Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Postpartem (LDRP) unit.

... Huh. I guess from my experience with visiting OB's, a sleep MD, my family doctors office, a cardiologist, a neurologist, and interviewing with multiple MD's I found that they utilize RN's.
