Labor and delivery nurses care for pregnant women throughout the process of giving birth and help ensure the babies experience a safe and healthy delivery. Labor and delivery nurses may also tend to pregnant women who have been hospitalized with complications and new mothers experiencing post-partum depression. Professional organizations for labor and delivery nursing (L&D nursing) include the Association of Women?s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN). The National Certification Corporation offers several RNC certifications, including for Inpatient Obstetric Nursing (RNC-OB), Maternal Newborn Nursing (RNC-MNN), Low Risk Neonatal Nursing (RNC-LRN) and Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing (RNC-NIC). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses.
