Labor and Delivery Travel RNs provide care to expectant mothers before, during and after childbirth. L&D Nurses spend a significant amount of time with the laboring mothers coaching them through the entire birth experience while administering medications and epidurals under the order of the physician, and assisting the midwife through the actual delivery. Labor and Delivery nurses also work with other members of the medical team to help implement a plan of care based on the patient’s condition. Their role as an L&D RN requires them to be knowledgeable of relevant technologies and evidence-based practices to provide the highest-quality care.
