LSUHSC-NO Nursing School Ranks Among Top 10 in U.S!

The School of Nursing at LSUHSC New Orleans was ranked among the top ten schools in the United States in the inaugural rankings of Nursing Schools Almanac.

Our School of Nursing ranked ninth on the list of Top 100 nursing schools in the United States, second overall in the Southeast, and fifth among public nursing schools in the United States!

Nursing Schools Almanac’s mission is to provide an accurate, complete, and powerful online resource for aspiring nurses to make educational decisions.

Their research team collected data on more than 3,200 nursing schools and campuses throughout the United States and evaluated each school on three dimensions: the institution’s academic prestige and perceived value; the breadth and depth of nursing programs offered; and student success, particularly on the NCLEX national licensure exam.

Congratulations to the School of Nursing for standing out as a NLN Center of Excellence™ and sustaining an impressive pass rate of 95-98% on the NCLEX-RN exam over the past six years!

Cancer Moonshot Summit on 6/29/16

MoonshotLogoThe LSU Health New Orleans Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center will host a Cancer Moonshot Summit on June 29 from noon to 4pm at the Louisiana Cancer Research Center, 1700 Tulane Ave. Augusto Ochoa, MD, director of the Cancer Center is hosting the summit. He is the only Louisiana expert on the Blue Ribbon Panel and one of 28 nationwide.

This meeting will be open to the public and is free. It will cover clinical trials, treatment, philanthropy and advocacy. Registration is preferred: www.surveymonkey.com/r/L87SPTV.

“The White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force’s mission is to double the rate of progress in cancer research and treatment, striving to accelerate what could be achieved in ten years in just five. The goals of the Cancer Moonshot cannot be achieved by one person, one organization, one discipline, or even one collective approach. Rather, solving the complexities of cancer requires the formation of new alliances to defy the bounds of innovation and accelerate the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and – ultimately – the curing of cancer.” Summits will be happening nationwide on June 29th.

MICROBES—tiny organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye—have altered human history. Life forms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness or restore health, and help produce foods and beverages.

Scientists, in partnership with industry, have developed techniques to harness the powers of these microbes. In recent years, headline-grabbing technologies have used genetically modified bacteria to manufacture new medicines.

A glimpse into the past reveals a history of human enterprise that has adapted these tiny organisms for health and profit. This exhibition explores some of the processes, problems, and potential inherent in technologies that use life.
