  • I'm in school for nursing. What you're talking about is a labor and delivery nurse. You become an LPN first then move on to RN. The pay really depends on where you live and work or if you're an LPN or an RN. You can look it up for your area and find more info on pay. For my schooling, it didn't require any math, but EVERY school is different.

    What you need to do, is figure out what school you want to attend. Look up their nursing program or contact a counselor. You will have to start off with pre-reqs and that's where you will do math (if any is required). BUT a word of advice, to get into the nursing program you have to take a test called the TEAS test. This test does have math on it, so if you aren't great at math, it may be best to take a basic math refresher course! GOOD LUCK!

  • If you want to work labor and delivery, you likely will need to be an RN. Depending on where you live, wages can range from 20-35 hourly and up
