    Cool sign me up. Thank you so much for answering my questions and others. Now I have one more for you. do you have to take your NCLEX through Wisconsin? It would seem that you would be able to take the NCLEX in any state you choose. Is it because the ADN program is not accredited by the NLAC? Just curious?

    If you take the NCLEX with your ADN, yes only Winsconsin because of accreditation. But you can transfer the license and won't have any problem.

    Thanks PR Nurse!

    When I visited the school the nursing coordinator told me that since I spoke Spanish that I could be certified to work as a nurse in PR after my first year since I would technically have an ADN. Is this true? Do any of the students do it? I know the money isn't great, but it would be great to be accumulating experience while finishing school. Thanks again!!!

    Yes, it's true. You just need to apply for the provitional nursing license in Puerto Rico and you can work as an ADN RN.

    Ok cool. Did you do this?

    Oh and lastly how much total did the program cost (not including books)?

    Almost everyone do it. You have to pay a graduation fee of $100 to apply for the ADN. That way the university review your records and give you the degree. Whiout that you cannot apply for the provitional license.

    As for cost, without any general education courses is about $12,000. It's about $170 per credit plus the administrative fees that are nominal.

    about books:

    They give you a list when you get there. If you have a credit card with an address from the States you can buy them online and ship them to PR. It's the list expensive way.

    I am new to this website and just found your thread through google. I have recently applied to IUPR (like last week) and now i'm totally freaked out that I won't be able to start in Aug 2010 as I would like to. Is it really that difficult to get information about acceptance? I am applying to the metro campus and I can't even seem to figure out where it is on the map, i've gotten so much conflicting information even on that simple task. Can someone tell me where the metro campus is located? This is where the English Trimester program is i'm assuming. If i'm wrong someone please clue me in! Thanks, and thank you to all the previous posters who have shared their experiences and information. I hope i'm not too late to get started in the August class.
    Thanks!

    Below is the link to the Google map in my maps. However in my maps there is a star where the actual school is. When I click on this link there is no star but it gives you an idea anyway.
