Associated with the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, this university focuses on providing healthcare and nursing education. Among the online master of science in nursing options, students can opt for a family nurse practitioner option. An accelerated track allows students to complete the program in five terms (about 18 months).
Distance learners can complete the majority of their degrees online. However, they need to travel to campus for a seven-day skills session within the advanced health assessment course. Students must also complete 600 clinical practicum hours. Because of the university's religious affiliation, the curriculum also incorporates courses in identity and mission in faith-based healthcare.
