A job in L&D is looking pretty unlikely for the time being- internships are few and far between, but this is my passion! Do midwives ever hire R.N.'s for birth assistants or for any other purpose?
Is there a place for nurses in ooh births at all?

However, as pp mentioned, you might be lucky enough to be in a place where you can work at a birth center or something like that... good luck!
Mama to two awesome kids. Wife to a wonderful, attached, loving husband. I love my job-- I'm a Midwife, Doula and Childbirth Educator, Classes forming now!
You never know, maybe a large multi midwife practice needs a RN on staff for routine patient care.
Around here RN's are part of the staff at all OB doctors offices, they do all the patient prenatal care and have the real relationship with pregnant women.
(oh, and this one wasn't advertising a job when I got hired....I sent out resumes and letters of interest to several places, this birth center happened to have someone leaving when my letter arrived)
