This article describes an innovative collaboration between Stony Brook University, NY and the University of Asmara, Eritrea, aimed at increasing the number of qualified nursing faculty in Eritrea. Eritrean graduate nursing students used distance education technologies and in-country clinical support to complete a program of study that prepared them for an advanced practice nursing and faculty role. The 10 students were all highly successful and graduated in 4 semesters. The article provides key recommendations to other universities considering distance education collaboration to help build nursing capacity in developing countries.
