Louisiana LPN Salary
Not only does Louisiana offer a world all its own with bayous and parishes instead of rivers and counties, but it also offers an attractive package for those wishing to enter into the world of nursing. One of the simplest ways to enter the world of nursing is to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. This is the area of nursing that has more responsibility and education than a CNA, but less than and RN. Licensed practical nurses in Louisiana tend to make an average salary of about $40,000 a year.
When one considers that this can be accomplished with less than a bachelor’s degree, that’s quite an appealing figure.
