Help us give under-served students the dignity of supporting themselves, and families, in meaningful and necessary occupations.

Support the future generation of nurses and healthcare professionals.

Our students' determination, our inspiration

Our mission at Labouré College is to provide a diverse group of students with the opportunity to reach their dreams of becoming nurses and healthcare professionals. The Labouré student is not a traditional college student. Many are raising families, working, or caring for elderly parents. What they all share is a passion to care for others.

The impact?
Each year, Labouré loses students
because of unmet financial needs.

We believe that our students are worth every penny.
They have what cannot be taught: compassion and a true calling to care for others.

Make a Gift

Your support also changes the community's life


Despite the best efforts of medical professionals and educators to increase the workforce over the past few years, shortages are projected in every healthcare profession.

"Training new physicians, nurses, and other health professionals takes years, sometimes decades. Without more graduates from nursing and medical schools and increased innovation in shared roles and responsibilities among doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals, individuals and families will face longer wait times, greater difficulty accessing providers, shortened time with providers, increased costs, and new frustrations with care delivery."

—Amy Anderson, DNP, RN, CNE, is a Graduate Health Policy Fellow in the Center for Health Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation and an Assistant Professor of Nursing at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
