Labor and delivery nurses have to do double duty, caring for both laboring mothers and their newborn babies. A nurse on the L&D floor will need to monitor the mother and baby's vital signs, administer Pitocin and other meds ordered by the doctor and be able to keep the mother calm and relaxed during and after the labor.
Contracts for travel labor and delivery nurse jobs can range anywhere from 3 to 13 weeks, so you can choose an assignment length that works for you and your lifestyle. Contracts may cover special project assignments or be related to rapid response and crisis response scenarios. In some cases, you may be able to renew your contract when it's up if you like the area of the facility, but the short-term contracts also mean you can move on to the next location on your bucket list if you want.
Labor and delivery nurses are in high demand, and that means there are plenty of jobs to check out at NurseChoice. You can bring your skills and experience where they're needed most with an assignment that appeals to you.
