Dr. Jennifer Couvillon, RN-BC, PhD, CNE

President - New Orleans Campus

An experienced nurse educator and innovative leader specializing in academic-hospital-community partnerships, professional development, and accreditation, Dr. Jennifer Couvillon is on a mission to make the world a more caring place.

Before joining Chamberlain University in 2017, Dr. Couvillon was a nurse leader in the Ochsner Health System, faculty at Louisiana State University Health Science Center School of Nursing and Georgetown University MedStar Health System. Organizing study abroad programs to promote nursing education globally earned her recognition in the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society and started her passion to volunteer as the Academic-Volunteer coordinator for the American Red Cross.

“If your heart is open to a career in caring, it is a blessing to be educated as a nurse, and my hope is to create opportunities for people to safely care for each other,” says Dr. Couvillon.

Currently, the president of Chamberlain University’s New Orleans campuses, which are part of the Ochsner Health and LCMC Health System, Dr. Couvillon is focused on addressing the local shortage of nurses by integrating the nursing school educational experience with hospital nursing professional development programs. This novel approach maximizes hospital workforce funding and solidifies a pipeline of nurses.

Chamberlain University College of Nursing is the largest and most diverse pre-licensure BSN nursing program in the United States. As campus president, Dr. Couvillon feels fortunate Chamberlain University educates students in New Orleans and celebrates the mission to improve access for students while recognizing the social determinants of learning.
