    I don't know about the other program here in English. The other program is at UMET but I don't know much about them. The program in English at La Inter started 14 years ago and the one at UMET started 2 years ago I believe. They are not by trimester. I think their classes are bimester so two sets of 8 weeks in the fall and in the Spring. Anyway I really don't know much and my guess is that it would be a fall start only.

    Hey Guys!

    Starting the Nov program next week and hope to meet you all. Thank you all very much for your posts and guidance. It's been a huge help

    I'm currently at the student Casa on campus recommended by "E." Looking on classificados for some affordable housing at the moment. Anyone know any bulletin boards on campus that I can look for roomates/housing that I should check out?

    Thanks!

    Igarcia if you are here in PR I strongly suggest you drive around the area yo want to live in. Most Puerto Ricans don't advertise online. This is really the best way to do it.

    You can try umet which is the school I attend. Yeah la inter program started way before umet but it's the same director. Meaning the same nurse director who started the English program in la inter started it in umet about two years ago. One of my professors also taught in la inter and she's from California she's awesome lol. I'm taking fundamentals now and we will do clinicals towards the end of the bimester maybe in the VA! I suggest you visit both schools which is what I did and umet caught my attention more. We have a class of nine right now which I love and every 8 weeks it's a new term.

    hi,
    i have a few questions. I am thinking about going to a bachelor nursing program in puerto rico. I do speak some spansih enough to get me by but am not 100% fluent. I want information on enlgish nursing programs in puerto rico.

    1. Which BSN programs in Puerto Rico are taught in english and are accredited as i want to eventually work in california and/or oregon ( with specific names of schools please)

    2. Out all the BSN programs in Puerto Rico that are english taught and accredited which ones are the fastest and easiest to get into?

    3. The information that I have been able to find on the nursing schools in puero rico, some of them say they require an interview..... is this a requirent even though one may be oversees? will they not accept you until you have an interview?

    4. Someone mentioned that the Metro campus requires a certificate of good conduct from the police.... how does one obtain this?

    5. Can i obtain a certificate of good conduct from the police in my state i currently live in?

    6. If i have a DUI on my record, will the police still be able to give me a certificate of good conduct?

    7. Out of all the nursing programs/schools that are taught in egnlish and accredited, which one (s) are located in cities that speak mostly spanish? I do want to improve my spanish skills and i think living in a city where spanish is mainly spoken rather than english wil greatly help

    8. Do the schools offer students to live with host families?

    Also could someone please send me step by step instructions on how to exactly apply to these schools as the sites do not give very good instructions and also could someone send me a link to the actual application ( in english) and along with "e"'s contact information??

    There are two english nursing programs in PR: Universidad Metropolitana ( which I go too) and La InterAmerican Metropolitan Campus (Which most of the people here attend). Both ARE accredited and you'll be able to sit down for the NCLEX. I do not know about la inter but in UMET one of out last class is Nursing Board Review and the prof. who teaches it has a high pass rate. Both are easy to get into as well. Now which one is quicker I'd see la inter if you have a degree already. Umet take 2 yrs and 9 months if your starting from the bottom meaning no college classes at all. The whole interview thing is a joke. You can come to PR and get accepted and sign up ffor classes on the same day. You'll need a certificate of good conduct and health for both schools especially for clinicals. for the police report just go to pr.gov and you can it online and sent to your email. Both schools are in the metropolitan area so many people speak english. La inter is in cupey and UMET is in Bayamon (our class is small about 9 students which I LOVE lol) and the whole host family ehh idk about that but go on clasificados online and you can find really cheap places
