A Labor and Delivery Nurse provides a balance of the same elements that are found in the ICU, operating room, ER department and pediatric nursing. A Labor and Delivery Nurse has to have excellent communication skills because they are the link between the patient, family members and the doctor. A Labor and Delivery Nurse must be able to think on their feet and come up with solutions quickly. L&D RNs aide the doctor and spend many hours on their feet.
