    Dr Khataza Jessie Wheatley says

    The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is popular among international students because it offers strong job prospects in any country and a good salary in most countries upon completion. The demand for BSNs in the United States is high as the current generation retires, meaning there are lots of job opportunities across the US.

    Choosing to study nursing at our University will allow the opportunity to study in state-of-the-art clinical facilities and train under the guidance of leading lecturers in the field. As an international student nurse, you will train in acute care hospitals, hospice care centers and outreach clinics.

    Studying nursing in the US allows for the opportunity to learn from nurse educators who are nurse experts, and allows students to be surrounded by professionals from various cultural, ethnic, religious, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds.

    As a US-educated nurse, you can work in acute care hospitals, hospice care centers and outreach clinics in most countries after undergoing their licensure and credentialing process.
