    Hi Shiela- i am not a nurse yet But hope to be a LPN real soon and then continue my education to get my RN, I am hoping to get my ADN at LSUE but the waiting list seem to be extremely long

    I am just wondering if u make a pretty good living in LA as and RN, I am just assuming u are one
    And do u think that LPN's are use greatly out there where u are, they seem to be use a lot out here from what i can tell, but i really would like to know other La nurses opinions are about this

    I hear most LPN here make $15-$20+ out here ( lafayette,. Which i think is an good salary compared to some states i see

    Hi Mitch,
    Did u find LSU-A hard to get in i have heared that LSU-E as a long waiting list and they pick only certain students who, have tried to take more than the pre-req course, GPA, and those that have some experience in health care already. This is why i am doing the LPN program for 18 months first before i apply, I am hoping this shorten my wait

    The pay is pretty good up here for both LPN's and RN's. NSU has a good bridge program for LPN to RN and also a good ADN program. Good luck in school we need more nurses Oh yeah, I am a RN graduate of NSU's ADN program back in 1991

    LSU-A accepts around 60 students twice a year so your chances of getting in are better than LSU-E. Since they accept more students you can get in with a lower GPA.

    Hello there. I live in Mississippi but am licensed in Louisiana. I work as an LPN in the New Orleans area and I think the money is pretty good.

    Hi, I graduated from LSU-E, then went to USL (when it was still USL), and now am at Loyola in the NP program.
    I am currently nursing in Lafayette. We have several new hospitals opening soon, so if any of you students are looking for a job, they should have some here!
    What about in other areas of LA? Are many new hospitals going up?
    I'm wondering what's going to happen at LSU medical center today, the ax is supposed to fall.

    I am an Army RN, living in Leesville, working at the Army hospital in OB. I just joined the Army last year and gave up my nice fat civilian paycheck. The pay right now is very good although the work can be pretty demanding. How is the nursing shortage affecting everyone?

    GLAS- IT so nice to meet a nurse so close to me, Can u tell me if u enjoyed LSU_E, i really wish i could just forgo being a LPN and go directly into thier program, but its just so darn hard to get into from what i hear, I have not yet applied, there. I just hear how hard it is to get in. This is why i am going the LPN route, Yeah and USL is NOW ULL,, By the way di du find the transition to UL hard from LSU_E, I mean concerning all the exam by credit test, and the profile test u can take to skip courses

    I loved LSU-E. It is a tough school to get in (even in the early 90's!). You should atleast apply.
    When I went back for my BSN at ULL, I was able to test out of all but the last 2 semesters of the program. I did have to take all of the pre-reqs, that is what was time consuming.
    To test out they give you the NLN exam, it was pretty easy. I think I ended up challenging about 100 hours.
    For the LPN to RN program, the LPNs aren't allowed to test out of that many classes.

    I'm looking at the ads on the top of the page, and see this one..
    Prentice Hall's Nursing ...
    Billie A. Wilson

    The author of that book is my instructor this semester! Dr. Wilson.
    Just thought I'd share! BTW, that book is required for her class!
