Ochsner and Chamberlain University celebrated the first anniversary of a partnership created in 2018 to tackle the significant shortage of registered nurses, both in our state and throughout the U.S. healthcare system.

We established the Chamberlain University College of Nursing at Ochsner Health New Orleans Campus to expand capacity and increase opportunity for qualified and deserving Louisiana nursing students.
From the exam room to the surgical suite and everywhere in between, compassionate, skilled and well-trained RNs are central to every aspect of great patient care. The Chamberlain program is designed to support new graduates’ transition to practice as highly trained RNs and better prepare them to face the challenges that nurses encounter today. It encompasses interdisciplinary learning as well as extensive use of simulation training that supports clinical experiences for nursing students.

Chamberlain students have the exclusive opportunity to complete their clinical rotations at Ochsner facilities and partner locations. The Chamberlain Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program is distinct from most programs in that it can be completed in as few as three years of year-round study, providing direct entry into a nursing program. To broaden their experience, third-year students can apply for a BSN Nurse Technician Honors Program and have access to system nursing professional development programs at Ochsner Health.
Through our alliance with Chamberlain University, we’re not only expanding the nursing pipeline to benefit both Ochsner and our entire community — we’re opening the doors to more people who seek to pursue careers in this vital profession.
