University of Louisiana - Monroe (School of Nursing )




The School of Nursing at The University of Louisiana at Monroe is located in the Nursing building, directly across University Avenue from the Administration building. The four-year baccalaureate curriculum offers a pre-nursing segment and a professional nursing segment.

When the requirements for the pre-nursing program are met, a pre-nursing student applies to the School of Nursing for admittance to the professional program. The professional program consists of five semesters of clinical, didactic and seminar instruction in fundamentals, medical-surgical nursing, obstetrics, pediatrics, community nursing, critical care nursing, mental health nursing, management and nursing research. The School is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Admissions are based upon the availability of clinical sites and faculty. With all factors being equal, preference is extended to Louisiana residents.

HISTORY

In response to the community needs for increased health services, the Louisiana State Board of Education authorized Northeast Louisiana State College to establish a Nursing Program in February, 1960. The program was inaugurated in the Fall of 1960. The Department of Nursing, as it was known, offered the only professional nursing program in the northeastern section of Louisiana. The program received initial State approval from the Louisiana Board of Nurse Examiners in October, 1960. Full State approval status was granted in April, 1965. The first class of generic nursing students was graduated in June, 1964. The School of Nursing was initially granted accreditation by the National League for Nursing in 1966.
