LSUA seeks to expand its School of Nursing and Allied Health

Alexandria, La. (KALB) School officials at Alexandria’s LSU plan to open their new state-of-the-art $35 million health care education facility in downtown Alexandria within two years.

LSUA Chancellor Dr. Paul Corrill announced earlier this week that the three-story building would be placed next to the current AC Buchanan Allied Health Facility on Jackson Street, adding that its location would put it closer to Alexandria’s two main hospitals.

LSUA graduates about 70-80 nurses each year, said Dr. Haywood Joiner said he is confident that will double with the construction of the new facility and help meet the need for healthcare workers in Central Louisiana.

“We are looking at building a school that will be about 5500 square feet,” Joiner said. “It will be a three or four storey building. That building will allow us to expand our allied health offerings and add approximately 1,200 students to the downtown location. We think it will be very beneficial for the downtown area.

Currently, there are 550 current openings for Registered Nurses and another 170 for Health Professionals in Central Louisiana.
