    Is that for RNs or LPNs?
    That would have to be for RNs.
    Of course New Orleans Hospitals may be higher but the cost of living is higher there also (tourism).
    From what I have heard/read Louisiana averages for NEW Nurses are about:

    CNA $8-$10
    LPN $10-$15
    RN $16-$20

    THANKS!

    Actually it depends where you work.The rehabs pay starting fifteen for LPN's and Private duty about sixteen.However the state correctional is paying my friend twenty-two plus good bennies.You can't beat that.Rn's here make 22 -25-27 if you include diffs.But still it depends on what you are doing.I have a good friend (RN) who works travel and lives here.She got a local contract and is around thirty with great benes.She even get housing and elec. allowances.What it depends on is paying your dues when you are first employed as a nurse and being a good worker who can get good refs.That will take you along way.It has taken me through twelve years and still going.
