    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.

    I didn't rent an apartment so I can't tell you. Maybe someone else can reply. I did have money saved, not much but I did. There's always problems with Financial Aid; they lose documents you already turned in, they don't give you the right amount, etc. it's usually a lot smoother after the first trimester but not always. Make sure you keep copies. For example, they told me I didn't turn in exit counseling and was gonna have a hold on my account for transcripts, etc. later that day, I emailed the copy of my exit counseling.

    I applied to both online. You can see what they require for general admission on the inter website (check English trimester page). From what I understand, entrance requirements are still the same for the school of nursing but I do think they're getting stricter with school rules. I'm not 100% in this, just what I've heard since I already graduated and not personally there anymore.

    I rented two different apartments. The first year by the school and the second year by the beach. I really don't remember what either one needed. I know the first apartment I rented in June when I was there for orientation. I didn't have a bank account or anything local and the landlord was very much by the book and everything went fine.

    As long as you have money for the deposit, etc you should be fine.
