Dr. Hany Nashed FMD, MSc, BSN, PHN

Director of Nursing

Dr. Hany Nashed graduated with an MD degree from the Cairo University and practiced as a pulmonologIist for more than 25 years. He immigrated to the US in 2001 and obtained his BSN from Azusa Pacific University before joining WCUI in 2010 as the Director of General Education and nursing instructor. Dr. Hany grew quickly alongside WCUI’s School of Nursing and became the Assistant Director of Nursing in Ontario in December 2012 and Director of Nursing in Ontario and Beverly Hills in April of 2016 while the school’s population more than doubled at each campus.


“The nursing pass rate at our Ontario Campus has grown from 65% to 95%! And our Beverly Hills campus has grown from 57% to around 80%! All the success of WCUI and the WCUI School of Nursing must be attributed to the guidance of Myra Chason and the encouragement and help of Andrew High.”

Jordan Hung RN, MSN, PHN

Assistant Director of Nursing

Jordan Hung began his nursing career at an acute hospital where he grew a passion for the Neuro ICU, Urology, and Liver Transplant units. He then spent 4 years helping Alzheimer’s patients find alternative treatments as a sub-investigator at a pharmaceutical clinical trial clinic. In 2013, Jordan Hung decided to make the transition from clinician to nurse educator and joined WCUI’s School of Nursing. Throughout his 6 years with WCUI, he has transformed from a novice instructor to an expert educator. Under his guidance, many students have not only passed the NCLEX exam the first time but have also gone on to get their RN to BSN degree!


"The role of a nurse educator is both rewarding and challenging. I believe educators have the ability to teach the importance of care and compassion to their students by modeling care into their teaching methods. The climate in our classroom is always full of trust and support and I will continue to be at the front line to assist our nursing students in achieving their dreams.”

Lee Londette Dua aka "Mr. Lee" RN, BSN, JD

“I have seen how important excellent nursing care contributes to patients and their recoveries. This motivated me to become a teacher to future nurses. I believe that with persistent hard work; anything is possible. That is what WCUI Nursing program is all about. WCUI's Nursing program helps build future nurses with excellent nursing care.”
