International Students

Healthcare professions are in high demand in the United States. The job market for nurses is projected to grow by 12% from 2018 to 2028, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the median pay is $71,730 per year (roughly $34 per hour).

With a 13:1 student-faculty ratio, Nebraska Methodist College is small enough to give you individualized attention, but large enough to offer state-of-the-art laboratories and all the latest technology. International students can choose from a variety of healthcare degree programs, including bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in nursing, allied health and healthcare management.
