Shreveport RN pay? Job shortage?

by jrowmom Member

Hi everyone, getting back in nursing after two years out. (About 2 1/2 yrs exp. med surg and neuro) I've applied Part-time and Relief position on Med/Surg, Tele, and a Rebab unit nights and various shifts, Really curious as to what I should even suggest as pay IF (cross my fingers) I get an interview. Any input would be appreciated. Will take full-time if I need to as well, I mean if they are only willing to orient me that way?

Also is there a job shortage? Wow, just in 2007 when I graduated I wasn't even interviewed because there was such a nursing shortage. What is the deal? Getting nervous...

Hi from what I can tell there isn't really a nursing shortage in Alexandria LA there have been layoffs. I'm looking else where for work and doing resumes and everything. Like you said when I graduated I didnt feel out any apps I was hired immediately.

With regards to the nursing job shortage in shreveport, Willis Knighton and Schumpert have RN positions on their website, so they are hiring, just not as many spots... LSU has a hiring freeze for nursing and rarely has a RN spot come available... I know its not much help and you probably could have figured this out by looking at each hospital's respective job websites.
