Louisiana College has received a one-time grant for two million dollars from the State of Louisiana to begin a new Allied Health program. The new program will include degrees in the following areas:

  • Respiratory Therapy

  • Physical Therapy Assistant

  • Medical Licensed Technician

  • Radiologic Technology

Students will be able to obtain an Associates' or Bachelors' degree in all of these areas. Individuals, after completing two years of coursework and completing other requirements for an Associate degree will be able to enter the workforce and help fill the critical need for healthcare professionals in central Louisiana and throughout the state.

Louisiana College is filling a great need in the state, especially the rural areas of the state where healthcare professionals are desperately needed. LC will build upon a solid foundation of academic excellence in nursing and pre-med programs. For decades, the college has produced outstanding nurses and candidates for medical school who have gone on to serve their communities. With this one-time grant from the state of Louisiana, Louisiana College will be able to develop a new academic program that will continue to grow and educate students from across the state.
