I already have a BA, and am applying to accelerated BSN programs. I'd actually love to live in Puerto Rico, and so am considering studying there accelerated or not. My spanish is pretty minimal though by next summer it may be much better (3yrs in high school 8yrs ago, was conversational, using it again now working as an MA, and taking classes).
1. Interamerican university- since i've taken all the nursing prereqs, and have a BA, can i do it in less time than 3.5yrs? How did people like the program? Experiences with the NCLEX? What is the student body like? Experiences getting jobs afterwards?
2. U of PR Mayaguez or Antilles U. Some have alluded to non-native spanish speakers going there and becoming fluent as they go. Would it be realistic for me to choose this route? I understand the texts are in english, but if the lectures and tests are in spanish would that work? Are there immersion programs there? How many people like me end up doing this?
Hi Jen, Happy New Year!
I hope everything is going superb with school. Getting started in January and gonna try to make it accelerated since I have no more pre req's or electives to take (except History of PR). I will email you directly with some questions about textbook titles and Professors..
