Graduate Nursing

Thank you for your interest in Ochsner LSU Health System of North Louisiana for a preceptor or practicum educational experience.

An active academic affiliation agreement with Ochsner LSU Health System of North Louisiana and an active RN license for the state in which the clinical experience will take place or a compact license is required of all nursing students. If you are a student in a program that will yield additional licensure, such as an APRN, your program must have program approval to offer clinical educational experience with the Louisiana State Board of Nursing (LSBN). Programs approved for clinical experience in Louisiana can be found on the LSBN website.

Please note that we are committed to the professional development of our employees and do prioritize Ochsner LSU Health employees as well as highly rated graduate programs locally and across the nation.

You should not call Ochsner LSU Health providers or their offices.
