Xavier University School of Medicine (XUSOM) is proud to announce that it has recently partnered with Western Kentucky University (WKU) in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This partnership will allow nursing students to spend the first two years within our nursing program at XUSOM and then visit the US for the remaining two semesters in a US institution.

Upon achievement of our program outcomes, our registrar will issue the BSN degree and provide documentation of completion transcripts to the Commission for Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS). This will permit our students to apply for NCLEX licensure in the US, should they desire to practice there at completion. XUSOM and Western Kentucky University will share mutual opportunities for the benefit of students.

Baccalaureate of Nursing at XUSOM

Unique to XUSOM, students will gain an inter-professional experience. Nursing students will have the opportunity to learn alongside medical students, therefore acquiring experience in working with future colleagues.

Students will be exposed to a culturally diverse environment. They will be able to learn in different hospital settings, encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone and think critically in a variety of settings.

Students will take part in a Standardized Patient Program. The community and the Ministry of Health in Aruba welcomes the arrival of the BSN nursing students, who will be able to interact and assist the community through health related events.

At XUSOM, class sizes are small and interaction is great, allowing for all students to receive an individualized learning experience.
