    Happy Holidays To Everyone For Interamerican University of Puerto Rico; has anyone been able to clep out of the following courses, and if so, what clep test did you take: GEHS 2010 Historical Process of Puerto Rico. GECF 1010 The Christian Faith. GEIC 1000 Information and Computer Literacy. Thanks


    For Interamerican University of Puerto Rico;
    if a person has already taken college courses in Anatomy and Physiology (1&2); are they still required to take The Adult Care classes (1 & 2) which implement Anatomy and Physiology plus Theory in the course?

    ... They did ask me for class descriptions, but only for the classes that they weren't sure about giving me credits for. ...
    I had a Bachelors so I was in the accelerated program. In the accelerated program there are 2 required general ed classes. One was "History of Puerto Rico" and the other was "Christian Faith." Since I went to a private Catholic University I studied religion and decided to minor in it. So I did have to send them descriptions of all my religious studies classes. I forgot about that.

    I don't know specifically for these two classes if you can test out of them but I have done it for other classes so you'd have to ask the the department head if its possible.

    You will still have to take Adult 1 and 2, including the A&P sections. I wasn't happy I had to redo the A&P part but it was worth it to review it all. Adult 1 and 2 (also known in the states as Medical/Surgical 1 and 2) is mostly nursing so yes you will definitely have to take those classes.

    You can't test out of them but about half the class got out of either one or the other. Most people that had a Bachelors from a Christian University which of course requires taking religious studies classes got out of Christian Faith. Then some people that were history or poly sci majors got out of History of PR. But both are online and History of PR is the easiest class I have ever taken in my life. Plus it was interesting but it was definitely dumbed down.

    If you do the BSN as most do it is 22 months. Start in August and end May 2 years later, with a month off at summer, 2.5 weeks at Christmas and a week of Spring Break.

    But you can also do the ADN in 11 months.

    Hi,
    I'm also new here, so first off I'd like to say Thank you so much to everyone for all the great info. on this thread..
    I am also considering PR for school and just had another question regarding life on the island.

    I have recently been reading many reports about heightened crime and homicide specifically in San Juan/PR..
    Aside from taking all the sensible precautions (not walking alone at night, staying out of bad neighborhoods etc), do you guys who are in the nursing program there find crime to be a big problem and something to worry about?

    Thanks, I appreciate all the help this thread has given..

    I want to introduce myself and also thank all of you who have posted so much helpful information! I know without this forum I would be quite lost. I applied to InterAmerican University for August 2013. I'm currently in undergrad and will be graduating in May with my bachelors so i'm hoping (and from what I read on here) I should get into the accelerated nursing program. The only thing I regret is that my application was submitted online and my University sent my transcript straight to the admissions office today and I still have to send my ss# which means they might lose at least one of my documents since they're not all together. But anyways I might use my spring break and fly down there to do everything in person which leads me to my 2 questions.

    1. If I go there in March and complete registration and get accepted will I be able to register for classes for August or will March be too early to do so?
    2. Anyone else planning to start in August 2013 or taking a trip to check out the school?

    March may be to early to register but it does not hurt to go in person to take care of everything. It is much easier then trying to do it over the phone. Getting anything done over the phone in PR is very difficult. It is always better to go in person.

    I would say wait until the June orientation but they are getting a bit stricter on admission so I would go Spring Break. However if your Spring Break is the week preceding Easter there would be no point in coming to PR as that is the same week the schools in PR have. No one will be at school and you will not be able to get anything done. It is Semanta Sana and they take it seriously.

    But if you do have a different week I would say come down and take care of getting admitted. Then once admitted you can register a few days before school starts. There is a fixed set of classes you will take. My grade we only had one set and all of us were in the same class but the next year it was so big they had two groups of classes. My point is that you will get your classes if you register last minute. Since they started caping classes it is more important now to get admitted.
