Australia & US

IVS offers two nursing programmes of half a year in the United States and Australia. Those programmes are mainly theoretical with a small practical part.  Each programme takes 20 weeks abroad. Both programmes are so called pre-structured free minors. As a student you will take part in classes given to nursing students in the US and Australia. You will experience campus live like regular native students. You will follow the education like all regular students of the university you are going to! Once yearly a mail is sent to apply for the Australian programme and twice yearly for the US programme.
