    We did that last week it was crazy! Lol a lot of running around and a looooong wait at financial aid. We still have to go back and bring a couple thing in order to set up payment for our financial aid. Did you already fill out fasfa? If so, then you walk up and they check it then give you a number to talk to someone and just let you know everything hen and there. After that then you go to another office to set up payment. Registration was a bit easier. But she only put me in 11 units. I want to try and add one more class. We still need to get books! We found a place really fast in the first couple of days! We (me and my friend/roomie) found it on classificados online. We live in condado the area can be pricey but we got a great deal and feel safe in our area. If you have any questions I can try and help. we are still getting settled our selves. We still need a car! Lol

    Hey everyone I'm new to this site seems awesome so far! I live in new jersey 2 more semesters until i can take the nclex for lpn. Im looking into puerto rico nursing schools and thinking of moving there sometime in the near future. What I've noticed so far is the lack of pay and not a great outlook for a nursing career which is giving me doubts, am i wrong? I was also wondering if they offer an lpn/rn transition program?

    You don't move to Puerto Rico for a job. The pay is awful. I had a friend working as an LPN making less then 8 USD an hour. I know some RNs that make 11 or 12 USD an hour. Yeah it is really awful.

    At the moment La Inter does not have LPN to RN program. However I don't know about the other schools but I haven't heard of any that have a bridge program in PR.

    I will be attending Inter Metro in 2013, can anyone give me any helpful information or a heads up on any experiences that they may have had. Will anyone else be attending in 2013? I am going to read all the post in a few so my question may already be answered.

    Sabrina you do not need Spanish for the English nursing programs here but there are not any graduate programs that are entirely in English. And there would be no reason to move here for a job because RNs make 12 USD an hour.
