The Hyacinth Chen School of Nursing was officially opened on the 10th of August 2008 on a location directly across from the Northern Caribbean University campus across from NCU's Dental Centre located in Mandeville, Jamaica.

The school is owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica. The school is being named in honour of Mrs. Hyacinth Chen, the mother of major donor, Michael Lee-Chin, Jamaican/Canadian businessman.

The school will hold 800 nursing students and will reduce Jamaica's nursing shortage.

It is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system.[1][2][3][4]
