Travel Nursing in Louisiana:
Did you know?

  • Louisiana produces more than 90% of the crawfish consumed globally. If in LA from February through early June, make sure to indulge in these tiny crustaceans.
  • Musically inclined travel nurses love Louisiana. And you don't have to choose favorites between Jazz, Blues or other favorites. There are about 1,100 concerts a year!
  • Explore scenery you can't find at home on a three-hour swamp tour. Take a selfie in the wetlands to show friends and family the distinct beauty of this landscape.
  • Louisiana is the only state that has parishes rather than counties. It's thought that French settlers chose this term because it's close to what they used in France.
  • Louisiana is known as a "Sportsman's Paradise." Travel nurses who enjoy fishing and hunting are sure to enjoy themselves in this distinctive environment.
