Ochsner Center for Nursing and Allied Health

Introducing the Ochsner Center for Nursing and Allied Health* at Delgado Community College

Ochsner Health and Delgado Community College have partnered to train the next generation of nurses and allied health professionals, forming the Ochsner Center for Nursing and Allied Health* at Delgado Community College.

Ochsner has committed $20 million to expand Delgado’s nursing and allied health education, including $10 million toward a new, state-of-the-art building to be constructed on Delgado’s City Park Campus. The remaining $10 million will be used to cover full-time tuition for Ochsner employees to pursue degrees and credentials in nursing and allied health programs at Delgado. Additionally, two adjunct faculty members from Ochsner will augment the programs beginning in Fall 2021.

The new building will house the Delgado Charity School of Nursing and most of Delgado’s existing programs offered by the Division of Allied Health. This will be the first time these programs will be offered under one roof. The grand opening is expected for Spring Semester, 2023.

*Name pending final approval by the LCTCS Board of Supervisors
