U.S. colleges and universities offer various degree and scholarship options at the undergrad and graduate levels.

Growing up in India, South Korean national Misol Kwon attended Kodaikanal International School, an American residential school. While there, she says she was exposed to cultural diversity and social responsibilities – an experience she says sparked an interest in the field of nursing.

Kwon's passion for nursing took her to the U.S. where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2013 from the University at Buffalo—SUNY.

"U.S. education encourages big dreams and values your dreams as a nurse that strives to improve our society," Kwon says.

Prospective international students interested in pursuing a career in nursing have several options to consider at U.S. universities, and some schools – such as Yale University, Columbia University, Duke University and George Washington University – have separate pages on their websites for international students interested in nursing programs.

Students may pursue an associate degree in nursing, BSN, Master of Science in Nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice or Ph.D. in nursing, and can work either in the U.S. or return home. Here are some things prospective international students should know about nursing degrees at U.S. universities.
