I am currently working toward becoming a nurse and would like to go all the way to becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife which means I need to get a job as a labor and delivery nurse but I'm worried with the economy and the passing of the health care bill that I will spend all this time in school for nothing.
It's a really scary thought!
How likely is it that I'll have a job?

That is a question best answered with your school counselor based on the AREA you live in. Your grades/curriculum, experiences, and other credentials... To rely on CM to answer this question about your life seems rather random.

How could you be out a job with more people seeking health care?
If Dr's aren't getting paid enough for Medicaid patients (for example), they won't hire new nurses. THe 11pm news just did a story on the hiring in our 4 local hospitals. Where at least 350 other nurses have applied for one 3rd shift position. 1st shift positions had over 1000 applicants.
