First Cohort of LCMC Health Nursing Program Graduates from Chamberlain University

NEW ORLEANS — On Dec. 20, the first cohort of the LCMC Health Called-to-Care Program graduated from Chamberlain University.

LCMC Health and Chamberlain University joined forces to help address the nursing shortage and nurse burnout due to the pandemic. As a result, LCMC Health established the Called-to-Care Scholars Program, an initiative addressing the demand for more nurses and the need for expanding access to high-quality education by creating a pipeline of nurses committed to serving the community.

LCMC Health’s Called-to-Care Scholars Program awards up to three years of full tuition coverage to eligible new students for Chamberlain’s 3-Year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program at the new course location on the campus of East Jefferson General Hospital. Additionally, these scholars will commit to an up to three-year employment pledge to LCMC Health upon graduating and passing the NCLEX-RN and provide care for underserved communities in the New Orleans metropolitan area. In its first year, students have been accepted into the Scholars program.

Chamberlain University, an Adtalem Global Education institution, is committed to finding solutions to the workforce challenges that employer partners are facing, while offering opportunities for academic excellence, student success, and lifelong learning. Through expanding access to education, Chamberlain’s network of more than 100,000 alumni makes a difference every day in the communities that they serve.

LCMC Health will continue supporting nursing efforts by strengthening patient care readiness and expanding educational opportunities, creating nursing pipelines to support regional and employer needs, and maximizing community impact by scaling healthcare excellence.
