Because of the nursing shortage, the Nursing and Allied Health Programs at South Louisiana Community College (SLCC) is in desperate need of attracting Registered Nurses.

SLCC's Division of Nursing and Allied Health has a PN program on Acadian (Crowley), C. B. Coreil, Evangeline (St. Martinville), Gulf (Abbeville), Lafayette, T. H. Harris (Opelousas), and Young Memorial (Morgan City) campuses. And an RN program at the Lafayette Campus and an LPN to RN program in Opelousas.

SLCC is looking to hire for both the PN and RN programs.

Currently they can accept RN's for employment with an ASN, BSN, and/or MSN degree.

Full time and adjunct positions are available. The adjunct positions offer a 12-hour shift on Saturday or two 8 hour day/evening shifts per week.
