College of Nursing & Health Sciences
Few professions give you as many choices of where to work, areas to specialize in, or degrees to use as nursing and health sciences. The range of specialties is almost as varied as the personalities of the health care professionals themselves.

The College of Nursing and Health Sciences at UL Lafayette offers a world-class education with the hands-on experience and support you need to have a successful career in nursing, health information management, health services administration, and pre-dental hygiene.

As one of the largest Nursing programs in the US, we're proud to have first-time pass rates on the NCLEX-RN that consistently exceed national and state averages.

Our graduates are highly sought after by health care institutions based on their understanding of evidence-based practice, health care quality, and leadership and management.
