College of Nursing and Health

Become an innovator.

We have a tradition at Loyola University New Orleans: Our students are wildly successful. They go on to serve the city of New Orleans, the State of Louisiana, and the world.

Our graduate programs are rooted strongly in our Jesuit ideals, yes, but they are also constantly evolving to offer relevant skills and real-life experience. They prepare you to be an instrument of innovation in your chosen profession, to revolutionize your field – and to create new ones.
