Brandman University and City of Hope have joined forces to provide educational opportunities to City of Hope nurses seeking a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing degree.

City of Hope selected Brandman’s School of Nursing and Health Professions based on the university’s curriculum, designed to prepare nurses for selecting the best practices to implement for the health care environment.

“Both of our institutions adhere to a patient-centered philosophy that guides everything we do and elevates the humanistic elements of nursing,” said Renee McLeod, dean of the School of Nursing and Health Professions. “Brandman's curriculum is unique in its focus on technology as well as on developing critical thinking and analysis skills as key leadership factors in an environment characterized by innovation and transformation.”

Brandman University will offer several options for working nurses including an online nursing component and short sessions on campus. All students will have access to the university’s simulation lab that offers real world application of the latest technology.

The university also designed a special Certificate in Professional Oncology Nursing course specifically for City of Hope.

Scholarships will be available for qualified students and the winners will be announced in the beginning of July.

“We’ve created an innovative advanced nursing practice school and have attracted some of the nation’s leading educators,” said Brandman University Chancellor Gary Brahm. “As with all Brandman degree programs, quality, accreditation, personalized service, flexible schedules for working adults and high graduation rates are key benefits for nursing degree candidates.”
