The Mt. San Jacinto College Foundation awarded scholarships to 41 MSJC nursing students on Nov. 1 during a scholarship event at Menifee Lakes Country Club.
Scholarships disbursed totaled $30,800. Some of the MSJC nursing students plan to take advantage of the new pathway agreement between MSJC and Loma Linda University to complete a Bachelor’s of Science and Nursing (BSN).
Loma Linda University (LLU) School of Nursing, LLU Medical Center-Murrieta, the City of Menifee and Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) announced a unified partnership that has led to LLU School of Nursing signing its first transfer agreement with a public college. The agreement will provide qualified MSJC students with seamless access to the School of Nursing’s Registered Nursing to Bachelor of Science program so they can achieve their educational goals at the private, world-renowned institution.
Under the agreement, MSJC students who earn an associate degree in nursing and receive a registered nurse license will be able to transfer to LLU School of Nursing to earn their Bachelor of Science in nursing. In addition, a set number of clinical rotations will be guaranteed to MSJC students at LLU Medical Center-Murrieta to keep local students in the region once they achieve their nursing degree.
Ron Carter, PhD, Provost for LLU; Peter Baker, Senior Vice President for LLU Medical Center-Murrieta; and Dr. Roger Schultz, Superintendent/President of MSJC, were joined on Tuesday, Oct. 30, by Menifee City Manager Armando Villa, Mayor Bill Zimmerman, Mayor Pro Tem Lesa Sobek, Council members John Denver, Greg August, Matt Liesemeyer, and Economic Development Director Gina Gonzalez, for a signing agreement and celebration at Menifee City Hall. Menifee officials were instrumental in bringing the private LLU and public MSJC together to discuss an agreement that will build a stronger workforce for the region, with a goal of increasing quality of life for students and residents.
