    I know it depends on how many years you've got, but my mom is making 28.00/hr in a Dr.'s office and my dad was making about $500 a night! Whatever that is an hour I don't know, but he was making about 40/hr with an agency...sounds like good money to me.

    What hospital do you work at in Shreveport? It is always good to know which hospitals to keep in mind when looking for employment in the future. I'm getting ready to apply possibly next semester for the ADN program at NSU and I've been trying to gather as much info as possible regarding post graduation. I can't wait to start the program, I am nervous but also very excited at the same time. I have been procrastinating for too long.

    hello everyone. thanks for all the great posts about the new grad salary. i haven't seen anything on the pay for new grads in baton rouge. does anyone know what a new grad working at olol-br, womans hospital, oschner and baton rouge general should expect to start at? any input would be greatly appreciated.

    also, can anyone shed some light on the job market here as well. how long is it taking for the new grads to get employed? if its taking a while, what are the employers saying? are there any new grads unable to land a job?

    just curious about how things are and what the class of 2011 has to look forward to.

    thanks guys!!!
