Labor and Delivery Nurse Jobs

Labor and delivery nurses help women through the process of childbirth and provide postpartum care immediately after each delivery. Expectant mothers rely on these nurses to provide encouragement and support during what can be a long, difficult process.

L&D nurses are also responsible for administering medications, monitoring laboring mothers for complications, assisting obstetricians and midwives with deliveries, and caring for newborn babies.

Most hospitals set aside separate areas for labor and delivery. Nurses who work on these floors focus on caring for the mother and her infant before, during, and after delivery. 

The Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports a projected 12% rise in employment opportunities for registered nurses over the next several years. A greater number of medical facilities and increased demand for nurses across all specialties will help stimulate the need for more labor and delivery nurses as well. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts the Registered Nursing field to grow at a rate of 12 percent through 2028, significantly faster than the average for all occupations.
