Louisiana PCA Jobs

Few states have been affected by the nursing shortage like Louisiana, as it has been struggling to fill nursing jobs consistently since the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Specifically, the state has a severe shortage of CRNAs, particularly in the New Orleans area. Recent grants and federal funding have been provided to expand nursing programs in the state to boost the number of RNs. The nursing shortage is Louisiana.s limiting factor in the number of hospital beds that can be opened to the growing number of people who need them.
