NEW ORLEANS, LA — In response to a nursing shortage, LCMC Health has announced an exciting collaboration with Chamberlain University through a new program launching, Called-to-Care Scholars.

The pandemic and the events of the last fifteen months have shone a bright light on the critical shortage of health care workers, and The Called-to-Care Scholars Program is an innovative alliance of healthcare and education formed to address this critical workforce need.

This program also enables them to carry out one of the mission's core components, which is EDUCATION.

LCMC Health and Chamberlain University will collaborate to strengthen the nursing profession and address shortages through a full-tuition support program.

LCMC Health intends to fully fund a three-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Chamberlain University through this collaboration. This full-tuition funding will cover ninety BSN students each year for the next three years. Over a six-year period, a $14.4 million commitment is made.

This program will build a stronger local workforce and keep those higher-paying jobs in the greater New Orleans area. Every day, nurses and all other employees go above and beyond, and this is truly an investment in people and the exceptional care they provide. It's what sets the hospitals apart, as well as the team.

As the first class will begin in late August, please visit for more information.

LCMC Health, founded in 2009, is a Louisiana-based, not-for-profit hospital system that serves the Gulf Coast region's healthcare needs. Children's Hospital New Orleans, East Jefferson General Hospital, New Orleans East Hospital, Touro, University Medical Center New Orleans and West Jefferson Medical Center are currently under the management of LCMC Health.
