The objective in this study is to report the perceptions about the university realities of Brazil and the United States during the academic experience in an American nursing school. It is a report of an academic experience that was realized in an American University in the United States during the exchange program known as Science without Borders, funded by the Brazilian government. The US institution of choice for the exchange program was the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) - School of Nursing. The contact with a differentiated academic reality, with well-equipped university environments and with trained professors, the international academic mobility provides the contact with people from different parts of the world. The academic experience in another country is very important, not only for those who live this experience, but also for the institution that sends the student. The student, when they return to their country, they bring with them an incalculable baggage of learning. The student can share with their academic community everything they have experienced and, planning changes to their own institution, too.
