    • 1. NEXus from a Dean’s Perspective Marilyn Herrmann, PhD, RN The Loma Linda University School of Nursing Journey
    • 2. Loma Linda University
    • 3. Loma Linda University
    • 4. Why we Chose to Join NEXus • Increase course options for our students without hiring more faculty members • Reasonable fee structure for our budget • Orientation and in-service was provided for our faculty and staff • Opportunity for students to increase their networks of research support • Share the unique contributions of our faculty with others http://winnexus.org/
    • 5. Challenges Encountered • Working with our Financial Aid/Student Finance office to understand the tuition structure • Taking the proposal of such a novel idea through University committees • Working with the Registrar to credit students with courses from other institutions without counting those units as transfer credit
    • 6. Challenges Encountered • Actually getting students registered between our quarter system and other institutions’ semester systems • Students needing to feel part of an already established group • Educating our own faculty to on-line courses • Registration for overseas students
    • 7. Outcomes for the Students • Increased the opportunity to study with experts outside our school • Expanded the course offerings available each term • Provide a larger cohort for student interactions • Expose students to potential research mentors
    • 8. Advantages to the School • Provide faculty members with additional opportunities for broader student contact • Supplement school income from courses usually taught for few students • Enhance faculty interaction and exchange among schools
    • 9. Advantages to the School • Yearly meetings provide opportunity for discussion and collaboration among schools • Reduce costs by having students take courses through NEXus vs hiring additional faculty members
    • 10. Summary • Increased collegiality – Increase research collaboration – Expand faculty reputations across schools – Enhance faculty networks
    • 11. Summary • Sharing of resources – Allow smaller PhD programs to increase course offerings without increasing costs – Increase income from tuition paid by students from other schools • Expanding potential for doctoral mentorships
