He found that hospitals were eager to employ LAU registered nurse graduates and ultimately took an offer with the renowned AUBMC.
Today, Mohamad plays a vital role in the healthcare of adult patients with various medical and surgical conditions and is involved in nursing assessment, diagnosis, planning, intervention, evaluation, and coordination of care. He also works with patients needing non-intensive telemetry, a specialty he is certified in.

Jennifer has bigger dreams though. In the coming years, she hopes to take the CPA, earn an MBA, and to achieve the highest levels and positions in her job. She says LAU played a big role in her success and that without the financial support she received she would not be able to study at LAU and carry out her goals.
“LAU supporters are giving students the opportunity to study and to achieve their goals. They are dramatically helping improve the community by allowing for a new knowledgeable generation.”
I, and the entire LAU family, are so grateful for your constant commitment to helping the university continue to make a difference in the lives of our students. This campaign wrap-up truly shows what is possible when we come together for a common goal.
Indeed, it is with the help of our generous supporters, like you, and their tremendous faith in us, that enabled us to achieve feats we only dreamed of, and for that we are thankful and ever more excited to continue on this journey.
While this campaign has ended, it is really only the beginning for us at LAU.
We thank you for your remarkable support and look forward to what’s to come.
