Hello everyone, I’m planning to move to New Orleans this Summer, does any one know how long the license process is? And do I have to be a resident of New Orleans, before they look at my job applications? Also what are the best places to work at, I have been a nurse for 20 years. I’m currently living in Vancouver, WA. Thank you.

Thank you, I’m currently enrolled in the MSN with emphasis in Public Health, and I would like to work in this field.

When I moved down there (years ago) I couldn't get an interview while I lived in another state. That being said, I was not interviewing for a bedside nurse role, not sure if that makes a difference. There are 3 main health systems in NOLA, Ocshner, HCA and LCMC. I really don't know much about the health department, if that's what you're looking for public health-wise. 

I don't remember the license wait time being absurd, but this was over 10 years ago.
