Brandon graduated from Greenville University in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in ministry. Just a few years later, on a mission trip to Guatemala, Leonard assisted at a medical clinic, and through that, sensed God calling him to nursing school. That inspiration led him to St. John’s College of Nursing to earn his bachelor of science in nursing.
Brandon offers a unique perspective on the BSN partnership between GU and SJC: "I think the partnership is fantastic! It’s fantastic that my alma maters are working together to help better the lives of others through nursing.”
