LSUHS serves as an Off-Campus Instructional Site for the School of Nursing at LSU Health New Orleans. 

In response to the critical nursing shortage in Louisiana, the School of Allied Health Professions at LSU Health Shreveport will serve as an off-campus instructional site for the School of Nursing at LSU Health New Orleans. Courses will be delivered through a combination of in-person instruction and synchronous distance education, where students in Shreveport will virtually join classes going on at LSU Health New Orleans. LSU Shreveport and LSU Health Shreveport faculty will also teach some basic science courses.
