Regardless of the program you are applying for, ALL STUDENTS are required to submit their application via the Education Abroad Office online application system, HORIZONS.
Students will be prompted to choose which program they are applying for and then will be directed to a series of standard short-term or long-term immersion questions and a set of questions specific to nursing and their chosen program. In addition, for both short-term and long-term programs you will need to obtain two letters of support/recommendation from an SU faculty member speaking to your potential for success in an education abroad program. You will provide the faculty member instructions and they will log-on to the HORIZONS system to complete the recommendation online.
Submission of an application indicates you grant permission to the CON to review your unofficial transcript to verify your GPA and academic standing as part of the application process.
All applications for short-term programs (≤ 4 weeks: Belize, Nicaragua) are due to HORIZONS by 13 December 2013.
All applications for 2013-2014 long-term SU sponsored programs (> 4 weeks; Sweden) are due to HORIZONS by 10 January 2014.
The Mälardalen Nursing Program allows students to study nursing in a country renowned for justice-oriented health and social policy. Students study the role of nursing in the Scandinavian healthcare system while gaining practical experience through clinical courses alongside Swedish and foreign exchange students. This is the only long-term study abroad program available for nursing students, who will spend two quarters in Sweden, taking all nursing courses. This programs also fits within a modified nursing program of study and does not extend the student’s expected graduation date. The program is currently for TRANSFER nursing students only.
