Ochsner partners on $1.9M nursing simulation lab

New Orleans-based Ochsner Health and the Loyola University New Orleans College of Nursing and Health will open a $1.9 million nursing simulation laboratory Oct. 1. 

The lab, housed on Loyola's campus, will allow nursing students to participate in immersive, hands-on learning experiences in simulated inpatient and outpatient settings, according to a news release shared with Becker's.

Students in Loyola and Ochsner's joint Bachelor of Science in Nursing program will train in the lab, along with those in Loyala's accelerated BSN program, slated to launch in January. Ochsner offers tuition assistance for students in both programs who pledge to work at the system after graduation.

The lab was made possible by donations from the William Randolph Hearst Foundations, the Selley Foundation, the Edward G. Schlieder Educational Foundation and the Alden and Margaret Laborde Foundation.
