Hi! I'm an international student who just graduated from high school.I have my mind set on becoming a nurse but before I do that I want to explore different fields to see what might also interest me. I didn't get to explore much when I was in high school. At first I was thinking of going to a liberal arts and declearing my major only in my junior year like most students do. If I find a course that interests me, I was thinking of taking that path instead (eg. International relations, Languages). However, the liberal arts I've been looking up (eg. Colegate, Amherst) don't have nursing programs
. So my question is, are there any liberal arts with nursing programs? I want to study in northeastern US. If so, can you tell me? And if there aren't, are liberal arts elective classes available in universities with nursing programs? Do I have to declear my major in my first year?
I know I can just get a degree in liberal arts first then do nursing but I come from a middle class family. I want to get a bachelor degree in 4 years with minimum amoutn of money spent. So the liberal arts-then-nursing route is out of my options. So do they give financial aids/ scholarships to international students at nursing schools? Is the visa hard to get? I am lost and desperate so I would really appreciate it if you can provide me with answers. Thank you so much!
