I found some info, but nothing less than a year old. I am interested in L&D/LDRP (Ochsner, St. Tammany) and ER (University). What is the starting pay for new grads? What about shift diffs? Do any of these hospitals offer loan repayment, and if so how much/month? Do any hire new grads, and if so do they choose from their techs first? Thanks in advance.

- Jun 21, '10 by hs2005Most hospitals in the area start new grads at 22.50-23.50 an hour. I think University is under a hiring freeze again, but not sure. Did you just graduate? If so just make sure you have applications in at all of those facilities and just keep applying. I am pretty sure Ochsner is hiring in L&D right now. And yes they do give their techs priority. Let me know if I can give any more specific answers.
- Jun 21, '10 by RN2B12I am in the process of applying to nursing programs right now. I applied to BRCC, but I was not accepted (even though I have a 3.75 and go a 90 on the HESI, still a little bitter, LOL). I have a friend who is a nurse in NOLA, and she keeps telling me that it's so hard to find jobs, hospitals aren't paying what they used to, and there aren't any perks offered anymore. I just wanted to get an idea of what I should do as far as tech/volunteer work while I'm in school so that I have a better chance of getting a job in the department and hospital that I want (LDRP/St. Tammany is my top choice). I think I may be better off in the long run if I do a BSN program; maybe it will give me a better shot at landing a job soon after graduation. Thanks for the reply.
