The College encourages qualified students of all ages and backgrounds interested in a career in healthcare to apply for acceptance. To become members of Labouré's learning community, students are asked to submit an application and all required supplemental materials outlined in the Application Requirements for All Programs, and the Program-Specific Application and Admission Requirements sections. As an applicant, you will be considered based on your academic credentials, and the capacity to succeed in your intended program of study. No applicant shall be denied admission based on race, age, sex, religion, or disability. Since direct patient contact is involved in the clinical aspect of most programs, you must be able to perform the required duties without compromising the patient's safety or welfare.
Applicants must review and acknowledge the technical standards required for their program of interest during the application process. Questions regarding clinical responsibilities may be directed to the respective Division Chairperson.
