Browse Programs

One of the biggest challenges students face when making the decision to study abroad is the threat of graduating late as a result of their time abroad. This problem is easily fixed by choosing a study abroad program that is contingent to your major.

Nursing majors have a strenuous workload that spans a range of fields, levels and specialties. While it may not seem like it at first, studying abroad is actually the perfect way to develop important skills, and will ultimately allow you to excel in the nursing world.

Travel Programs

Some upper-division and graduate programs offer a unique traveling experience in which nursing students can travel between multiple countries over the duration of the program, gaining a truly international experience and studying at some of the most famous medical institutions in the world. These programs cater to nursing, public health, and health administration students, among others.

Universities

Another popular option for nursing students is to study at a medical university or within specialized departments. In many universities, undergraduate study options are available in the biomedical and medical disciplines, along with some specialist programs for nurses and postgraduate studies in a variety of subjects.

Research

Some great options for nursing students to study abroad offer clinicals and research programs in a variety of pathways, from Cancer Care to Specialist/Advanced Practice and Generic, ensuring that you will find an area that you are interested in.

Australia

With a lifestyle that is among the best in the world, jobs that give great job satisfaction and a solid healthcare system, Australia is one of the top professional destinations for nurses. The hospitals in Australia are on par with any world class hospitals and this gives the nurses ample opportunity to work in world-class working environments, with professionally qualified colleagues, state-of-the-art equipment, and medical technology.

Unlike hospitals in other parts of the world, professional stress is low in Australia, mainly due to the kind and friendly nature of the patients in Australia. Thus, the chances of experiencing career burnout are minimal in the Australian health care industry. Top hospitals include the Prince of Wales teaching hospital in Sydney, a leader in Australia's national health care system.

Singapore

Singapore is considered one of the four “Asian Tigers” and has a flourishing economy and healthcare sector. Singapore’s stable and efficient economy and governance ensure your stability and job security. The Parkway Hospital Group is the dominant healthcare provider, with the Gleneagles Hospital as its flagship hospital. It boasts of multi-disciplinary and state-of-the-art facilities and is renowned for its expertise, quality care, user-friendly services and modern technology.

With Singapore’s commitment to excellence, nursing in Singapore will equip you with high-quality skills and knowledge that will carry you on throughout your nursing career.

Germany

Hamburg, Germany, is home to the Asklepios Group, the biggest private operator of hospitals in the entire European continent. It has over 100 facilities, as the company leverages its substantial wealth of experience to provide patients with the right treatment options and excellent service in medicine, nursing, and rehabilitation.

The Hamburg facility is its pride and joy. The hospital utilizes the most modern and cutting-edge medical equipment, serving as a laboratory for innovative medical technology companies that make their products available to Asklepios before it is even released to the rest of the world. Nursing in Hamburg will thus open your eyes and mind, giving you the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of medical innovation.
