(3)  We will present the check at the Convention for May graduates; at the Workshop for December graduates. 

(4) There will be no duplication of scholarship funds during one person's enrollment in the PN program.

 

The Louisiana Department of Health-Office of Public Health-Bureau of Community Preparedness seeks LPNs to serve in emergencies. The opportunities for LPNs are practically  endless! From caring for clients in shelters and clinics, manning a telephone triage line, providing client education and administering medications at a mass dispensing site, to caring for pets and their owners in co-located shelters, nurse volunteers are invaluable to the health and safety of Louisiana communities.

For more information about volunteering with Louisiana Department of Health's Louisiana's Volunteers in Action (LAVA),  see  www.ldh.la.gov/lava or phone 225-354-3508 or 354-3520.
