The Louisiana State University of Alexandria’s seamless transition to the virtual classroom continues to be validated by the recognition of its established online programs. The latest announcement from RegisteredNursing.Org names LSUA’s online RN to BSN program as the best in the state.

The recognition of the online nursing program coupled with the critical shortage of nurses during this pandemic, assures LSUA’s nursing program as a frontrunner for employing essential workers throughout the region and state.

Per RegisteredNursing.Org, data points used to compile the list are statistics like accreditation, types or nursing programs, ratio of program completion, annual tuition and fees, ratio of tenured faculty, graduation rates, etc.

“When it comes to nursing education, LSUA has a long tradition of being one of the best in the state, so it is great to be recognized as such,” said LSUA Chancellor Dr. Paul Coreil. “This tradition is clearly continuing with the transition to online education that is so important to many of our students who are working and raising families while they embark on a nursing career.”
