International Study Abroad
In our globalized world, there is a growing need to develop our students understanding of universal health issues. One of the best ways to instill a sense of global citizenship is an international study abroad experience. The College of Nursing currently offers study abroad experiences for students in our Post-Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing (PDBSN) program and for Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) students in years two and three. Students are selected based on good academic standing, a letter of application, references and an interview.
