    But what this lady in admissions does not know is the nursing dept will just keep adding classes. NO ONE will be turned away. And the classes you were referring to that were full were probably the clinicals. Since each clinical has only 10 people they fill up fast. And if there was an orientation and a ton of people registering at one time then different advisors may assign the same 10 class clinical and by the time you wait in line for a couple hours at registration that clinical is now full.

    There will be classes for everyone and there will be people getting admitted after classes have started.

    And don't stress if you have no teacher for some classes the first week. It happens pretty often, especially the first trimester of the year. In fact after the first trimester only about half the class shows up the first week of school. Since we don't get breaks between trimesters, some students make their own.

    But don't worry everyone will get into their classes.
    Thank you for posting this! My heart dropped when I read the post about the classes being full. I gave notice at work today and I would have gone crazy.

    . It hit me today that I won't be with my family and friends for awhile and I am sure other's are feeling the same way, but I just remind myself it's for a good reason. Wishing you all a smooth transition and positive first semester.
    Its slowly but surely hitting me too! Today was my birthday and we usually go out to a restaurant for dinner. But this is the first year that I had my mom cook me a home cooked meal. I figured, I wont be getting much of my momma's food for awhile !

    I also wish everyone a smooth transition in Puerto Rico. Looking forward to meet all of you guys!

    Oh that sounds like good news. I guess they finally looked at your transcripts or accepted that you have a Bachelors?

    Sorry we didn't connect when you were in town. It was so, so crazy then.

    For me my whole schedule was being returned history of pr, christian faith, basic nursing skills, and fundamentals, i dont have any lab classes yet. And my friend in the accelerated program the same thing was happening with pharmacology. Idk if you say that they just add classes i guess they must.

    I wanted to also confirm what somebody else said, they will just keep adding at the nursing department. Sometimes I wonder if people are going to the same school because depending on where you go at the Inter you can have completely different experiences. NEVER EVER trust what the admissions people tell you, they don't know their stuff so ask another department. I'm in the ABSN and was able to sign up for my classes without any issues. You'll be fine! Orientation is tomorrow and I can't remember what time it's at, I'll have to call early in the morning haha.

    That makes no sense at all. You have to find someone else to look at them. You don't want to retake all those classes.

    When you transfer I think they will only take 12 credits, they only took 12 of my 45 credits.
