The History of North Oaks and Our Commitment to Education

Since our inception in 1960, North Oaks Health System has steadfastly pursued research and academic excellence. This commitment is reflected in our individualized education programs tailored for each employee, resonating with their specific discipline.

We take pride in fostering higher-level medical professionals through robust partnerships with local academic institutions like Southeastern Louisiana University and Northshore Technical Community College.

Recent initiatives, including North Oaks’ MA-to-LPN Program, which graduated its first class in December 2023, exemplify our innovative approach in medical training. This program, along with the upcoming LPN-to-RN Program, developed in partnership with Northshore Technical Community College’s Health Sciences & Nursing, underscores our commitment to mitigate healthcare staffing shortages and uplift the quality of community healthcare.
