    Hi Quik248

    You mentioned needing a GPA of 2.5. I thought it used to be 2.0 or higher? Do you know if they changed this requirement, and if so, how strict have they been on this?
    Perhaps I'm remembering incorrectly too...

    Thanks..
    Yes they did change this. I had a friend that had a really bad GPA from her first Bachelors. She applied the exact year they changed it which was in 2012 I believe. She had like a 2.40 GPA and they did not let her in. That is after she already started the process when the GPA was 2.0 and above.

    They were getting so many applicants they decided by upping the GPA a tad it would cut out some people. You figure that most second Bachelor degree programs you must have a 3.0 or higher so 2.5 is still low.

    Hi Quik and ChanelCinq,

    Thanks for the responses..I thought that GPA had been changed, but couldn't remember.

    That is rough for your friend.. especially after she already started the process.
    I guess I understand their reasoning for upping the GPA requirement though if they are getting too many applicants.
    I got accepted last year but couldn't attend, so I will go back this year and re-apply and hopefully start in August..
    Thanks for all your help

    dzcafe I start taking online classes in Feb, the general courses. I'll be in the Island only for 2 years so I'm doing the associates and I'll do my BSN online later on. I should be in PR June or July. What are your plans?
    I plan to visit in April, move in late June/July and start the ADN in August, my plans are to complete the program in 1 year.

    You can do your associates in a year just take the pediatrics class they give in the summer. My friend completed her adn got her license and got into a rn to bsn bridge program at a state university in fl.

    Its an accelerated program - I already have a BS in science and have all completed a lot of pre-reqs - because I had been planning to attend in the states. I have been accepted to some programs in the states however the tuition in LaIntra is about 1/2 of what the other programs cost.

    Hello flakiz, unfortunately the LPN course won't be accredited here in la inter. I am also and LPN and they didn't give credit for any of my classes because the LPN is only a diploma not an actual academic degree. Even your science classes, such as chemistry, anatomy, micro won transfer either. The only that you might get credit for are general education courses: English, math, history, politics and others.
    Good luck !
