    Impossible to say--it's not as if there's one standard pay rate for RN's statewide...

    I'm in the Northern part of the state. It does vary, but here most start out at about 19-21$/hr with 3.50 for nights, and 4.00 weekends. Your state run hospitals will be the lowest paying for the most part. Also area hospitals here pay anywhere from .25-1$/hr extra for certifications.

    Okay I'm an LPN, that's not much more than I make now. I hope I get paid 4 my LPN experience when I start working as an RN. I reside in BR too.

    Yes usually hospitals will consider your LPN experience as well. Good luck!

    I work in the ICU for a large private hospital. New grad base pay is $20 per hr. $24 for nights. $26 for weekend nights.

    My wife (RN) works for a state hospital in the same town. She makes almost $27 an hour weeknights and $29 weekend nights. She has two years LPN experience that does not contribute to her pay, although she does get critical care diff of 50 cents included in what I listed.

    Yes, I've been told some places will not accept your LPN experience. I think it's a bunch of crap tho. In several settings LPN's do just as much or everything an RN will do. As a floor nurse, we can't do IV push or hang blood, but we are experienced in the rest of the job duties. A new RN grad wouldn't know where to start! Oh well.... It's LIFE! We can go back & forth with this one. I hope I can find a job that will consider my LPN experience when I finish RN school.

    Wow, moved to Baton Rouge 17 years ago, had 10 years experience as an RN and was paid $18/hr. Baton Rouge is a joke!

    I agree the pay here is horrible. However I have heard for awhile that nurses in the south stereotypically have high pt loads and low pay, that's why so many of them leave. I am getting out ASAP after I get my experience, I can hardly pay my bills on this wage.
