I've read many different things on different threads on this site and it was very informative, by the way. Let me start by saying that I am an African American female in the Air Force (Active duty)... Read More

    Hi IstSmile,
    INTER has anatomy, physio and micro built into the program, and they are not seperate. how does that effect me back in California when i try to go to Masters program for nursing?
    As a graduate, I can tell you that you'll need to bring the board paperwork to the Asst Dir (or whomever is in charge of it then) and they'll give you a letter that details what the board is requesting. And you're good to go!

    Hi everyone!

    I have a few questions and maybe someone here can help. I have an A.A. In Psychology and I've taken API, APII, Microbiology and Chemistry.
    Can I apply for the BSN Program at UMET even though my A.A is not in Nursing? If so, What other prereq do I need? I saw on their website that I need History of PR.....any other one? Do I need Nutrition and Statistics like most schools require here in the states as prerequisites?
    Also, if I have an A.A already, how long would the BSN program take?

    I've emailed the Dean of the Nursing Department but have yet to receive a reply.

    Any information or advise will be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Anyone from this thread actually move down to PR and started attending UMET? I am looking for more information about the application process and who I can contact at the school to arrange a tour when I visit.

    I moved from Texas to PR in August 2014 - I just completed the 1st semester at UMET Bayamon (18 credits)- while not the "best" place to receive your education, its okay.-be prepare to study on your own a lot. I do not dislike the college - its more the "environment" around it. You can apply online - send two copies of every transcript and bring two extra copies during your visit. Our director resigned in October however the department has some strong advisors to help you through the process. Most of my courses transferred - you can CLEP exam out of Spanish I-II - I advise you take all pre-reqs Western Civ I-II, A&P, Micro...etc in the States. PM me if you have further questions.

    Hi DzCafe,
    Thanks so much for your reply! I haven't posted enough so I can't PM quite yet :-(
    I just emailed "R" on Friday (but she has not responded yet) to ask some additional questions is she who resigned?
    I am currently in a midwifery school program that is distance learning so I am kind of used to learning everything on my own, but if you had to choose UMET or choose a school on the mainland over again would you still go to UMET?
    What are some of the barrios around Bayamon to visit and look for housing? My spouse and I are planning a trip next year to get a clear picture of everything.

    Hi! Thanks for answering. Looks like I'm finally going to visit this school in May, InterAmerican Metro Campus.. San Juan.

    My friend graduated there a few years ago and told me even though it's considered an English program, it's pretty much 60% Spanish. I'm just a little worried because I don't speak Spanish.

    Did you know some people who only spoke English as well and got through the program lecture/clinicals just fine?

    Also, since the English program is at night, was it safe enough to walk from the housing to school? .. (I heard there's housing kinda near school)
