After a generation, William Carey University is closing its nursing school in New Orleans. A major drop in enrollment and a decrease in demand for nurses in the New Orleans area since Hurricane Katrina has prompted the move by school officials.
The university has offered a nursing program in the Crescent City for 35 years.
The school will remain open for another 18 months until all current students have graduated. And the university will still teach nursing in nearby Slidell.
"We will operate a bridge program, an RN to BSN bridge program in Slidell, which we hope will help to meet the need there," said Dr. Tommy King, president of William Carey University. "We tried since Katrina to allow the program to build back and it just became evident to us that it would not," King said.
The university will still have a presence in the Big Easy. The school has just initiated an education program with the Baptist Seminary in that city.
And Dr. King says the nursing schools in Hattiesburg and Biloxi are growing.
