NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UHSA nursing program has been inactivated temporarily. The University is still authorized to offer the program and issue the associated credential. However, new applications are not being processed at this time.
Our nursing school program is a three-year curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The BSN curriculum mirrors the standards of U.S. nursing schools and follows the guidelines of the Caribbean Regional Nursing Board. Students receive excellent training from highly credentialed nursing and other faculty. Graduates can practice in the USA and the Caribbean as well as other parts of the world.
The entire program is spent on campus in Antigua. Students complete practical rotations at the Mount St. John Medical Center and other government health care facilities in Antigua. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the NCLEX examination and the Caribbean Regional Board Examination for licensure as an RN.
