    The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at the University of Minnesota will prepare you for a rewarding career in nursing and provide you with a strong foundation for a wide range of professional nursing opportunities. Graduates are well-prepared to enter the nursing field or pursue graduate education leading to careers in teaching, research or advanced practice nursing.

    Our mission: to generate knowledge and prepare nurse leaders who will create, lead, and participate in holistic efforts to improve the health of all people within the context of their environments.

    Our vision: The School of Nursing envisions a world where nurses lead collaborative efforts to attain optimal health for all people.

    The School of Nursing was founded in 1909 as the nation’s first continuously operated university-based school of nursing. The School offered a three-year program in which four students were enrolled. In 1919, a five-year program leading to a baccalaureate degree in nursing began. The shorter nondegree program continued until 1947.

    The school celebrated 100 years of leading nursing and health innovation in 2009.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
