The Library is pleased to announce that we have received special funding from the Board of Regents e-Textbook Project, Affordable Learning LOUISiana, to purchase 2 required textbooks for Spring 2017:

Analyzing and conceptualizing the theoretical foundations of nursing by Janice Morse (2017) for NURS 7307 taught by Dr. Gloria Giarratano

Vestibular disorders: a case-study approach to diagnosis and treatment, 3rd ed., by Joseph Furman (2010) for SPTHAUD 7323 taught by Rachel Wood.

These books are available with unlimited users and can be accessed anytime and from anywhere (on or off campus) through the EBSCO eBook Collection.

Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, Commissioner of Higher Education, directed the Board of Regents to find ways that the state could help students with the increasing costs of education and, in particular, textbooks.  The Affordable Learning LOUISiana program is coordinated by LOUIS: the Louisiana Library Network, a consortium of higher education libraries in the state. Through LOUIS, member libraries can participate in a variety of collaborative purchases that help reduce the costs of library resources such as databases, online journals, and ebooks.  LSUHSC-NO has been a member library for many years, and we are grateful for the LOUIS staff and all of their efforts to help improve higher education in the state of Louisiana.

The Library has a large collection of ebooks through a variety of sources, so be sure to check the INNOPAC catalog and our eBooks LibGuide for more information.  For help with remote access, please consult our Off-Campus Access Information.

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!
