    If you have a ba then you can get into the accelerated program and finish much quicker. There are a few tricks you can do there to also finish faster but it takes some more effort.

    Please let me know the tricks, and I have know idea when classes actually begin because I haven't spoken to anyone significant. Do you happen to remember? What I gather its sometime in August and others habe spoken about a November start date. What if I go and they go "you weren't accepted, why are you here" that would be kind of hilarious. Also, I would have to give notice to work. Would be good to know for sure i was a go..I shouldn't go quitting all willy nilly. I would really love the tricks you speak of to accelerate the process. Hey , you never spoke about if you took and passed the nclex. Did you feel prepared? Thanks again for your response, this forum is assume .

    I wouldn't worry about it at all about being accepted, its a sure thing. Maybe because they start at both dates. It really begins in August but its a trimester program so about 3 month classes. You can take summer classes so that would make you finish 3 months quicker, you can test out of English and Spanish classes, you can add additional classes to your trimester beyond their predetermined schedule, you can also take classes at the bayamon campus. I take the nclex in 7 days so I'll let you know. Message me if you have anything else. I'd be happy to help

    The 2 yr accelerated program (evening) for those who already hold a bachelors or just have a couple of classes to take before completing their first degree is completely in English. Even if you don't have a degree you can still be placed in the accelerated program if you have met all/most of pre-reqs. but this is at discretion of the program's director. The day program is a traditional 4 yr program in Spanish (for those starting off as 1st year of college). I do know the school has some English classes so somebody who is starting out could probably finish the whole BSN in English. All science classes even those held in Spanish have English textbooks. Hope it helps.

    Hello darling I will be attending UMET in August for their ASN or BSN I would like some advice though. I live in Hallandale Beach and I see you live in West Park. I am a new user but I ALWAYS USE ALLNURSE for advice. How can I send you direct messages on here Jen?

    Has anyone recently finished the BSN program at La Inter?! I am interested in beginning the program either in August or in November.

    Hello! I'm planning on starting school at La Inter in August. I'm getting a bit worried about the financial crisis (closing down hospitals so less clinical rotation, and closing down schools) has anyone in school, either UMET or La Inter felt any affects? Or has similar concerns? Thanks! Lacy

    I graduated the summer of 2014 so I'm sure much has changed since then. I found a place by driving/walking around the areas I thought I wanted to live and calling the for rent signs. Usually people stayed either by the school or like I did in ocean park. Other in Condado or they lived a bit away in nearby areas and also drove to school. I would go to the Facebook ( check my about me page for links) and you can ask current students or those who recently graduated. You can also contact the international relations dept at the uni and they were helpful with a lot of that. I can only speak to what my program was like as I'm not sure of all the changes that have occurred since then. All the best!
