    Hi

    My daughter was just looking for a school with a secure path into the clinical portion and this school has it.
    She has to keep her GPA to a certain level put she should not have a problem. We had never lived on an island before so it was totally a new thing. We are originally from CT but we live in N. Carolina now.
    St. Thomas is beautiful it does have some issues with crime but not so bad.
    If you know how to privately email or message (I do not) send me your email or facebook if you have one and you can keep in touch with my daugter. Her name is Arielle, she will be 20 in 2 weeks.
    Would you email me and I can talk with ya there? Thanks a ton! I need all the the help and advice I can get.

    Please check the NCLEX results for this school....for your own good.

    While I do not know about this school specifically, I do recall that some of the programs in that area have rather dismal NCLEX records.

    Do you know where I could find that out?

    My daughter is there right now and starts classes on Monday. If you have any questions maybe I can help.
    I got accepted into the nursing for this upcoming spring semester and i am trying to soak up as much info about the uvi nursing before i actually make the move.

    Was your daughter able to get the dorm room? How is her first few days? Because Im looking to dorm and have heard so many different things so thats why im wondering

    No

    She did not get housing and that caused some problems. If you need housing I would send the $100 deposit in today to get on the list. She is currently #34 on the waiting list. She is living in a guest house about 3 miles from campus. If you would like more info on that let me know.
    Her first few days have been OK, I think once she make some friends it will be better for her.

    Hi I have decided to go down there in January for the Spring 2010. Is that when you were planning on going? Maybe we can talk a little about thoughts about moving there and the school?

    Camille I wish you the best I hope everything works out for you. I am going to think about it for a few more days. Ys I am supposed to be attending for the Spring of 2010. I think I will send in the deposits for both admission and for the dorm room because I want to secure my seat and housing. If things dont work out for me they can just postpone my enrollment. But I really really want to go.

    Which state will you be coming from?

    Thanks I would appreciate it. Because she didnt get housing, how were you able to allocate a place for her to live. I had also read somewhere that because the school was short on housing they made a deal with a hotel that allowed students to live there for a little over what dorm room student are paying. Do you know how true that is or is that how your daughter got housing?

    I did the same and put my deposit in for both places. I am kind of an adventurer so have decided to give it a shot and get the show on the road. I will be coming all the way from Wyoming. What about yourself? What is your standing, do you have any of the first and second semester classes done? I do, therefore I will just be taking the NURS 120 class and a Chem class the spring semester, then will dive into the nursing curriculum in the fall. If you want, you can email me on facebook (camille.mcfadden) and we can chat some more. I would really like to hear what information you have gathered up and what your ideas are. Hope to hear from you soon..
