    Their pre-reqs include a&p 1 and 2, micro, chemistry, statistics, statistics research, algebra 1 and 2, biology 103 (basic biology), that's from the science and math portions, there are other basic classes and the languages of course. I would go to one of their orientations. To get more information. They usually have them on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Do you live use by?

    I went yesterday for orientation. I have all of those except the stats research and algebra 2 plus those language classes. I also took the language test yesterday so I have only two language classes to take.

    I don't know in Puerto Rico but at Turabo in Orlando the nursing program runs in blocks so you have already the amount of classes you will be having through the five semesters the program lasts. Once you start the nursing program, it'll take you the 5 semesters. Which is 1.5 years. To that you have to add the time you take to complete your pre-reqs. Hope this helps.
