degree from iuon?

  1. Hi all... Glad I found this site! I have a few questions about studying abroad in St Kitts at Internation University of Nursing (Robert Ross)

    Can you get a job with this degree in canada? I live in toronto... It is an Associates degree from 1 yr in the carribean and 1 yr in the states. Has anyone done it?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I currently attend IUON, the degrees that you will receive will be an associates in nursing from an accredited school in the US and also from IUON(im not sure about the rules for practice in canada with a US license, that you will have to research), but i really dont think it will be a problem. Most importantly, you will be able to sit for the NCLEX exam after completing the program in order to obtain a license. Yes there are two degrees, but the degree from the US school is the more valuable of the two, because the school is still seeking accreditation, whereas the affiliate schools already has it. Hope this helps you. . . email me at anytime if you have anymore questions.

    Thank you! My friend just left, she is attending Windsor for Med school... I like the whole idea of just going to carribbean.. totally different escape whereas here I am always distracted and end up choosing work over studying. Do you like it there? how far into the program are you? I am looking at going in may or sept of 07. I hear the tuition doesn't include housing though

    i was wondering if you this school provides dorms or you have to arrange your own housing let along with if the expenses can be covered with fsfas or you have to take private loan.

    last but not the least, what school you are attending?

    Hi I just found out today that I was accepted for May 2007 class. They do not have dorms, but the school helps you find housing. If you apply for the Sallie Mae loan (private) it covers your housing costs as well.

    i currently am attending iuon. i'm a 3rd sem student in the BSN program. the crime is the same as it is in the states. the rule is to act the same way you would back home and you'll be ok. lock doors, close your windows, don't leave valuables lying around.

    the amount of time you do in the us depends on which degree you are going for. if it is ADN you have to do 3 sem at one of the partner schools. if it is BSN then it's 2 sem in the partner school.

    if you have anymore questions just ask! i'l be more than happy to answer as best i can
