Labor and delivery are usually separated in most institutions, but the terms "labor" and "delivery" are used to describe the birthing process, which happens when the uterus contracts and the cervix (the opening of the uterus) alters to prepare a woman's body to give birth. Nurses in this work field are responsible for caring for the woman and her baby before, during, and after delivery.
Registered nurses are expected to have a 12% increase in career prospects over the next several years-according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. More specifically, the Registered Nursing field will increase at a pace of 12% through 2028, which is much faster than the national average. Increased demand for nurses across all specialties, as well as a growth in the number of medical facilities, will assist to fuel the demand for additional labor and delivery nurses
