This project seeks to evaluate the reasons why Central Asian countries, specifically Uzbekistan, seem to be falling behind other nations in terms of the quality of nursing education and training. This will be achieved by analyzing the motivations and expectations of students going into the nursing field, as well as trends in education space.

Additionally, it provides historical information on the development of nursing in countries such as the US that have more complicated/sophisticated healthcare systems. These comparisons are made in order to investigate potential similarities and differences as well as to provide recommendations to better the Uzbek approach in educating nursing professionals.
