Ochsner Nurse Scholars is a program for Louisiana students pursuing a nursing degree. We are thrilled to offer tuition support in exchange for service at Ochsner Health to eligible students throughout their nursing education at an accredited nursing school in Louisiana. Students accepted into Ochsner Scholars will receive tuition support, as well as additional support from Ochsner Health including mentoring, career coaching and more to ensure your success throughout the program.
Students who successfully complete the program will begin their career at Ochsner Health. Join a team of health care professionals who have put patients first for over 75 years.
Upon graduation, Ochsner Scholars will make a minimum commitment of full-time employment at Ochsner Health commensurate to their funding amount. For example, a Scholar in their first year of a BSN program receiving funds throughout their entire 3 years will be asked to commit 5 years of service. An LPN Scholar in their first year will be asked to commit 3 years. Exact awards and employment commitment will be determined by the nurse selection committee and human resources.
