    Does anyone have a good contact at InterAmerican. My problem is that I am ready to start school in UMET, but have no place to stay. The other school, Inter-American seems to do better at helping students a place to stay. I am suppose to fly in on Wednesday...this is kinda a panicked situation...

    Hi. I'm the current President of the InterMetro Nursing Students Association. I know our school has a short term dorm of sorts, called Casa Carmona. But it's on campus. I'm not too familar with UMET in terms of what they may offer. But finding a place would be dependant on where your campus is located. You may have to get a hotel/motel for the time being and look for a place to live on clasificadosonline.

    ok, so I read your earlier post. Seems like you'll be going to the Bayamon campus, so when you search online for places - you'll probably need to check around that area - if you'd like to live near campus. I commute from the beach area to Cupey - which is where my campus is at.

    Hi guys, thank you replying and giving some info about PR nursing schools. I have not had much luck talking to the schools. I just do not get a response. Could anyone please tell me how long those programs are and what are the perquisites?
    If I go to college here to do my prereq then as I move to PR, will I be able to apply those toward my degree????

    It really just depends on what you transfer over. If you're doing the full non accelerated program at Inter Metro - it's 3 years. the full accelerated is 2 years (need a previous bachelor's to get in it) If you've got transfers it could be less.

    If you've never gotten a bachelor's you could reduce your gen eds by taking them at home - but you would have to make sure they match the exact requirements.

    Cost is between 2500 to 3500/trimester for classes. depending on gen eds, labs, etc.
    No pre reqs currently for Inter.

    Hi, you seem to be very helpful on these threads. So I am attempting to start school at UMet Aguadilla in January 2014. I am having such a tough time getting any type of concrete answers from them by phone OR email that I am thinking of flying down just to solidify my admission. I plan on taking my nursing classes in Spanish for the ADN program. I already have a BA of Economics with a Spanish minor, and am currently finishing up Micro & A&P II at a school in the states. So, I will have completed all of my gen eds excluding History of PR and Computer Literacy. This means I need to start right in with NURS 101, according to this document: www.suagm.edu/umet/pdf/catalogo/undergraduate_catalog.pdf . I am having so much trouble getting anyone at UMet Aguadilla to answer me as to whether the Jan semester offers NURS 101, and according to this document they don't offer it and UMet Bayamon does :www.suagm.edu/umet/pdf/regular/programacion_02.pdf . Can anyone verify if this is the correct schedule and if I should just give up on Aguadilla til next fall and start in Bayamon in January? Thanks.

    Jen_Jen88, unfortunately I just joined the site so I can't PM until I have more posts accrued. If you add me on Facebook you can PM me there. facebook.com/sarah.r.henry.1 Thank you so much for your help! Also, if anyone has access to the UMet schedule of courses offered between Jan & May it would be great if they could post that link so I can verify if the schedule I found online is correct or not.
