Finding Employment as a Newly Licensed Registered Nurse in Louisiana (April 2014)

The 2013 Newly Licensed Registered Nurse (RN) Survey is a follow-up to the 2011 New Graduate Survey that was conducted in 2011. The Louisiana Center for Nursing conducted the first New RN Graduate Survey in 2011 in an effort to obtain objective data about the actual and potential employment challenges experienced by new RN graduates in Louisiana. The 2013 survey was sent to graduates from pre-RN licensure nursing programs that received their initial RN license between January 1, 2011 and May 31, 2013. Findings obtained with the 2013 survey were compared with those from the 2011 survey to begin to track trends related to the job seeking experiences of newly licensed RNs in Louisiana.
