How can I get into L&D nursing as a new grad?

Look into hospitals that are teaching facilities. You will see stuff there that you won't see in the private sector. My favorite hospitals are the ones that are teaching facilities.

Check for hospitals that have L&D internships. If that’s not available, consider taking a job in mother/baby initially then transferring to L&D.

I would scout it out during preceptorship and would apply anyway, even if no openings. Also, medsurg is always a good starting place and also where you can have feelers out for openings
