Through the Off-campus Master of Science in Nursing program, LLU School of Nursing partners with Adventist institutions to prepare faculty who will continue to serve in their home country. Partnership involves the contribution of financial support, personnel, time and resources for the education of institutionally nominated candidates. Thus far, 101 students from 11 Divisions of the world church have completed the program.
