Program Overview:

In 2003, Saint Louis University launched an International Nursing Program at its Madrid, Spain, campus, offering courses that help fulfill the degree requirements for SLU’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Opening international study to nursing students at SLU, the program allows both U.S. and international students work on their nursing degrees for two years in Madrid, then transfer to the SLU campus in St. Louis, Mo., for their last two years of study. Clinical experience in Spanish hospitals and clinics is integrated into the program, as are specialized courses to develop cultural sensitivity and Spanish language acquisition.
