For the Payscale College Salary Report, we've only been able to collect sufficient data on one junior college in Louisiana. That school is Delgado Technical Institute.

Delgado is a public college with about 19,000 students enrolled in the heart of New Orleans, LA. Whether it's your affinity for jazz, beignets or being close to home that draws you to a career college in the Pelican State, this is one of the best choices you can make in Louisiana for an associates degree with a solid ROI.

In terms of job satisfaction, students rated themselves "highly satisfied," and more than half of students find their work to be highly meaningful.

Some of that work includes various medical technician jobs -- from a Biomedical Equipment Technician to a Certified Surgical Technologist, a Nuclear Medicine Technologist, a Licensed Practical Nurse, or even a Phlebotomist (someone who collects various patient specimen).

The ratio of Females to Males at Delgado is about 66 to 34, making it a more heavily female populated school. Students will go on to work in many different parts of the state, be it Baton Rouge, Covington, or even Metairie. One of the most popular employers for graduates of Delgado is the Ochsner Clinic -- which is due largely in part to the number of medical workers Delgado produces.
